Buy things on Amazon?
I know the excuses; “Amazon has what I want and delivers.” Well, so do a lot of other web properties, and they’re often cheaper too.
“I like the 2 day ‘free’ delivery.” Most firms match it for purchases of some size (over $25 or so) these days. Oh, and their pricing is better. And there’s no such thing as ‘free’ either.
“They’re the leader in AWS.” Maybe on sales volume, but certainly not when it comes to pricing, and if you use their “special tools” you’re buying into a forced monopoly, which is first-class stupid as a corporation.
And what are you really doing folks? You’re providing money to Beelzebezos so he can in turn sign contracts with Woody Allen, who Dylan Farrow has accused of raping her. This allegation is 20+ years old and the prosecutor in the district said probable cause existed to charge him.
