Amazon has a lot of retailing power, and they are anti-free trade. I want
them bankrupt.


yet you were happy when apple lost their dispute regarding amazon's
predatory ebook pricing.

if you really wanted amazon to go bankrupt, in whatever fantasy world
that is, then you should be *unhappy* that apple lost, because now
amazon gets to do the very thing that apple said would happen, and
somehow, they're managing to get away with it too.

just look at what happened with hachette.

They exist solely to give greedy Americans the cheapest
prices possible (for the type who'll spend a whole day researching buys to
save $20 on a $1000 item)and next-day delivery because their customers are
spoiled children.


do you pay more than necessary for what you buy?

by the way, amazon isn't always the cheapest.

they're hoping that someone who is a prime member will order anyway,
because they get fast 2 day free shipping.

Dpreview is an enthusiasts site. If Amazon bought them with the
idea of getting value selling cellphones and P&S cameras, they
are mistaken. Amazon just lost $126M for this quarter.

they didn't lose $126 mil because of dpreview.

Did they make any money because of it?

do you own amazon stock?

if not, why do you care?

RichA hates anything which starts with an "A", especially if they are
successful and he hasn't been able to share in that success. Apple,
Adobe, Amazon, ....

Not true. Neither China, nor New York camera stores start with an "A."


oh yea?

what letter does adorama start with?

Perhaps is anything with an "A" in it.


perhaps he's already progressed beyond 'a'.

what letter does b&h start with?
what letter does china start with?
what letter does dpreview start with?

'p' is a ways off though. he'll get to it eventually.


He did, "Plastic".

Let's face it, he is miserable and hates everything.


DAMN - beat me to it...

That would be Toronto Waste Management, or the Rob Ford re-election committee.
