I love these “other buyers” things...


You know, when you look and see what other purchases people have made based on one particular purchase? The idea is, I guess, that it inspires people to make other "similar" purchases.

Well, check out the "recommendations" arising from this Buddy Holly CD on play.com

I'll tell you something now: I think only one person has ordered this CD, and that's me. Why? Because I have also made all those other exact purchases from the same retailer. How weird is that?!

So since you're the only one whose made a purchase, you've started a trend! Now everyone (presuming there will the others) will also buy all the same CD's as you...you should form a club;-)

I only use Play and Amazon to buy relatives presents and I think the last two people I bought for were my dad and my 6 year old nephew.

So I'm hoping that Amazon now has "Customers who recently bought The Story of German Football also bought The Adventures of Winnie The Pooh."

I always wondered about those lists. Yours is reasonable.
