Amazon s*cks – all the selection if you can wait forever


I’ve been an Amazon customer since 1997. But maybe I’ll stop now.

What’s wrong with this picture:

but in reality,

That’s 6 weeks from order to estimated shipment. Of course the first estimate was 2 weeks. Shouldn’t they now be advertising 6 weeks to ship, or is that being too truthful.

Note that Amazon’s price is substantially lower than the competition, but they don’t have product.

Hey, I’ll offer you a new Lexus for $1, but you’re going to have to wait a little bit… You can wait right? Don’t buy from anyone else in the meantime…

Now that Borders has ‘teamed’ with Amazon (or rather admitted defeat to Barnes&Noble), you might consider Barnes & Noble or other booksellers.

Updated 1/20/05:

Amazon now claims 1-3 weeks estimated shipment. However asking Barnes & Noble, their distributor contacted the publisher in the UK and the publisher is not printing the book any more. The distributor won’t even place an order.
