Personalization

Sometimes Amazon's "personalization" function really cracks me up.

Yesterday I went to Amazon and on the home page it was showing me 3 of Storm's books, saying "customers with similar searches purchased..." Um, YES, true! Then under that were 2 Smiths albums and a Morrisey album under "Recommended." And today it's still showing the Storm books, but then 3 Octavia Butler books are recommended (3 I haven't read, actually) and under "The Page You Made" it has 3 NIN albums, because I was looking something up related to some albums. Under that, there's a special on Adobe Photoshop. It really IS personalized!
