A Quick Tip by RabidChihuahua

  • Dec 27, 2012
Since I live in a rural area, Amazon is an extremely convenient addition to my life as I can easily buy stuff without having to drive 12-15 miles away to buy electronics or graphic novels.  With Amazon's Prime membership, which costs $80 a year, it includes free, speedy shipping (only two days from purchase, sometimes sooner) and being able to stream some movies for free on your computer.

However, like what the mighty Madpenguin has said in his review, Amazon isn't the ideal place to post reviews.  If you're a guy like me, who often thinks a little differently from the status quo (especially with anime), you're gonna be attacked for not liking something that everyone else does.  These fascist little twerps will slander you for being "contrarian" and a "troll," even if you articulate and analyze really well in your reviews.

Amazon is a great place to shop, but if you're interested in posting reviews, you're better off posting reviews on Epinions and Lunch instead.

online shopping is awesome here. But review posting is terribly one-sided.

Yeah you are correct with everything you are saying, but I love buying stuff there.

Buying stuff on Amazon is a huge plus for me (especially since I just got one Fates Warning and three Mercyful Fate MP3 albums for only $20 total). I just hate most of the reviewing community there.

As an author and independent publisher, Amazon has offered me a world market. While I am saddened by its impact on indy bookstores, and would urge people, whenever possible, to patronize their local after using Amazon for shopping around - I depend on it for global sales.

Although not highly advertised, one of my favorite Amazon features are the "So You Want To" guides.

I admit it, I have a problem...I'm addicted to Amazon.com.  If I'm on my computer, 95% of the time, I'm looking at Amazon, or if I'm not looking at Amazon, I just finished.  I started with books.  I've purchased dozens of books through Amazon.  They have a mind-boggling selection & you can get them for much, much less than at a regular book store (even with shipping costs included).      Another great aspect is the customer reviews.  While not …

If you can't get it on Amazon, chances are that you can't get it.

It's admirable to see that so many people love Amazon.com.  I really enjoy the place.  I showed up to Amazon in September of 2000.  My first review was of a strategy guide.  It's still there.  The horrible paragraph of a review... the type of review I'd later come to hate.  I didn't actually make my first transaction from Amazon until about 2006.  Plenty here have commented on how Amazon is a great place to shop.  And I won't fault them.  It …

The 800 pound gorilla in book sales.

Great resource for finding books and more .. I have a merchant account with amazon and post items on my blogs.

Great prices, selection, & shipping, but its members are generally disagreeable, and Amazon does not seem to censor any submitted reviews.
review by . June 23, 2009
I've been a customer of Amazon's since it opened, and over the last decade it's incredible to see how they've developed. What started as a simple but well-built online bookstore has emerged as the premier destination for practically everything imaginable, yet they've retained the ease-of-use, developed customer communities and practically invented the concept of online consumer reviews.  I realize now that I spent over $2,500 last year on Amazon.com, which doesn't sound like much but covers …

I'm a morbid cynic who thinks very, very differently from most other people. Chances are, if the majority says X is the greatest in its category, I'll disagree with that notion, because I tend … more

About this website

Wiki


Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQAMZN) is a US-based multinational electronic commerce company. Headquartered in Seattle, Washington, it is America's largest online retailer, with nearly three times the Internet sales revenue of the runner up, Staples, Inc., as of January 2010.

Jeff Bezos founded Amazon.com, Inc. in 1994 and launched it online in 1995. The company was originally named Cadabra, Inc., but the name was changed when it was discovered that people sometimes heard the name as "Cadaver." The name Amazon.com was chosen because the Amazon River is the largest river in the world, and so the name suggests large size, and also in part because it starts with 'A' and therefore would show up near the beginning of alphabetical lists. Amazon.com started as an online bookstore, but soon diversified, selling DVDs, CDs, MP3 downloads, computer software, video games, electronics, apparel, furniture, food, and toys. Amazon has established separate websites in Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Japan, and China. It also provides international shipping to certain countries for some of its products.

In 2010, Amazon's decision to remove Wikileaks from their servers resulted in numerous calls to boycott the company, with many people particularly incensed that Amazon then went on to sell copies of the Wikileaks material, despite using this material as its reason for removing Wikileaks
