Amazon categories...


Gotta love how they categorized this:

A third-party seller gaming the system.
If you place it in an obscure category, then sell one or two, then when people search for something, this one has a higher chance of reaching the top of searches because it's technically going to be the highest selling similar result within its particular category.

There's so many cool things out there. But I need to start saving again for next years replacements.

I did buy a expensive ios visual equalizer yesterday. I could not wait for black friday. No money for a phone replacement any time soon.

I should note that I have no interest in the product, I was looking it up just to see if they were still being sold and what the capabilities were, ie can it play all Steam games? I do kinda like the Logitech G Cloud, but would never spend that kind of $$. Looking more of a "keeping up" on things.

Amazon fucking up listings is a daily occurrance over here, they do just seem to have a team of spuds who go around "correcting" listings, then issuing threats of innacurate listings with imminent account closure if it's not fixed.

Their search seems broken today. Google finds specific items on the site. But the amazon site search does not seem to find these.

edit: oh, and they increased the prime membership by 2$ a month. Still cheap though.

Exec 1 : It's Amazon Prime Day \o/yeay\o/
Exec 2 : Yeah, you should buy Prime. It's cheap, and look at all the fun stuff you get!
Exec 1 : Hurray for Prime Day. Everybody loves it. Buy Prime \o/yeay\o/

....

Exec 1 : OK.. Now!!!
Exec 2 pushes the price increase button

The flash drive scam has been interesting to watch. Even Steve Gibson has finally started covering it and exposing it. When the fake drives are reported to Amazon, they "investigate" and side with the fraudulent seller and delete the bad feedback, etc.

I pay $6.99 for Prime. One of the few benefits of being a disabled vet.

It was 2,99 Euro's here since 2021 or so. Starting this month I now pay 4,99. My HBOMax is also that low from a lifelong introduction offer. But lifelong means the life of a product like its name or formula I suspect.(marketing)

Is Steve still doing Security Now? It's been a while since I listened to it.
