If I'm buying a product I don't always want amazon.
Quick funny story. I was dealing with about 15 well informed intelligent women this week many who were showing me their I-Pads and explaining their set-ups. Suddenly it was like somebody threw a firecracker into the crowd when one lady mentioned Amazon. Right off, if almost like on cue, all begin to let it be known they were very mad Amazon was number one on “all” Google searches. Their agreement on multiple issues among themselves quickly followed. First it was Google must be in bed with Amazon. Then it was basically that it was wrong to others what Google was doing and must be illegal. Plus many felt without any heavy evidence that Google must own many of the companies in the top results. I responded that Google can’t own that many companies. One woman then responded, “As I understand it they want to own everybody’s business.” The other women quickly agreed with her not me. These are the users who never visit forums like this. Plus the perception is often greater than the reality.
