I'm a Perl coder living in Bethlehem, PA and working Philadelphia. I'm a philosopher and theologan by training, but I was shocked to learn upon my graduation that these skills don't have many associated careers. Now I write code.

amazon secretly fixes something stupid

[ #30703 ]

I often get irritated with things on Amazon. Sometimes, I send an email about my complaints. Usually, I get an automated or otherwise not-very-promising reply. Then, the problem gets fixed after a year or two. The weird thing is that the things that bug me that get fixed never get the kind of fanfare that new features I don't like get. Those giant video clips kept getting in my way, the animated shaking gold box made me want to smack somebody, and so on.

Meanwhile, today I noticed that I can now tell Amazon that I do not want to have my recommendations based on certain purchases. I was getting yoga suggestions because of books I bought for Gloria. Today, I saw that I could uncheck "use for recommendations" on that product. This might make their recommendations useful again! That's dangerous, I might want to buy more stuff...
