Re: Amazon Purchases

Quote:
Not sure what your beef is with Amazon - just because a business is successful doesn't mean it's bad. I, like millions of other people around the world, will generally choose Amazon rather than local e-shops, for the very reasons that make their working model so successful in the first place.
And just because a business is successful, it doesn't mean it's good. Amazon's business practices come with a lot of side effects that may or may not be positive. I personally do not feel they are compatible with current Swiss culture and lifestyle.

I'm not saying it applies in your case as I know you have some specialized interests, but most people buy from Amazon because it's cheap and easy. Bottom-shelf alcoholics often have similar purchasing patterns.
