Amazon as a whole has really gone downhill though in the last year. The shipping thing I was talking about earlier is just a bad business model. But the site itself is fucking terrible. The marketplace is all mixed in with stuff they (Amazon) offer. There are some bands who have the same item listed four or five times, all with different prices and retailers. I can't say how many times I've gone to buy something, paid, then scrolled down two pages and seen the same item for cheaper.

And they have an air of desperation too. I've had a few items where I've gotten the "your item has shipped e-mail before I even got the confirmation e-mail.
I still order from Amazon (co.uk)...
