Amazon Marginalizing Amazon
I was thinking about possibly buying that new *reader* by Amazon, the so-called Kindle.
But then I saw that Amazon's own rating system had panned it with only 3.5 stars!
Of course, I never buy the latest, most expensive technology. My cell phone is a $20 POS. My color television is fat-screen and low-def. My golf clubs are 12 year old discontinued Tommy Armour 855s. My cars are sputtering clunkers. My Sony laptop cost $600.
The only thing top-of-the-line in my house is this desktop computer I am using. It cost $3,100.
Except, that's what it cost when I bought it 5 years ago. With desktops I've always bought the best and paid for the extra service/technical support.
