I noticed Ghostery didn't auto-block everything, I did have to set lots of manual blocks.  Will try out Privacy Badger, thanks.

So now Amazon

I seriously recommend reading this fucking drivel that CNN has put out.

We're gonna put the record straight  :madgoon: about Amazon not paying taxes!

... and then they only mention sales tax and property taxes (WTF?). People are shitting on these megacorporations because they don't pay enough taxes on the profits (and maybe workforce). Why are you talking such nonsense CNN?
But I do often point out that I write both science fiction and fantasy. It’s just that the science fiction is usually titled ‘technical proposal’ and the fantasy is titled ‘budget proposal.’

I couldn’t find the original article I read so I went with the first one I found on duck go. Figured anything I didn’t mention or mentioned incorrectly would foster discussion.

So now Amazon

I still can't decide where I stand on  :madgoon:TRUMP HATES AMAZON

1) Amazon pays "little or no taxes to state & local governments,"
-Wrong. Flat out wrong. Disagree. Fucking wrong. Sorry Trump, can't support you here.

2) Amazon's relationship with the US Post Office causes "tremendous loss" to the United States and
-No idea. Would like to know more. AFAIK they have a private "back door" deal. Would love to know if USPS is profiting/losing or breaking even from Amazon deliveries.

3) Amazon is "putting many thousands of retailers out of business."

-Maybe and if so, it's their own goddamn fault. Most retailers I visit are able to compete, as long as they can price match, which isn't hard. Amazon isn't as cheap as their reputation makes them out to be. Throw in a modicum of product knowledge beyond what's written on the package and you've got Amazon bent over a barrel.

Amazon is a shitty retailer, BUT they offer 2 day delivery at a pretty good annual price. Prime is a really great business model, but I cannot and will not order electronic parts from Amazon. I've tried ordering DC adapters, network cables, ribbon wire, etc. Always the wrong output, tip currency, patch configuration, etc. The description will say "crossover cable" but when I try to use it, nothing. Split it open and sure enough, the wires are in the wrong order. Amazon gives me a refund to keep me from complaining, I leave a 1 star review and a description purely as an attempt to deter others from wasting their time on the same mistake, but beyond that nothing gets solved. The product stays up there, because the only thing Amazon customer support reps are able to do is decide between refund or no refund. There's no ~computer electronics specialty supervisor~ they can submit a quality assurance ticket to, in order to ensure the validity of the product's description.

Shit needs to be flagrantly fraudulent, counterfeit, extremely poor quality or some other form of ~total outrage~ worthy to get pulled. "Simple mistake in the description, please correct" isn't enough, because that's not what they do. They're not specialists in anything. They have no working knowledge of what they're selling.

You'll get your refund, purely on good faith that you're telling the truth, because who are they to say you're wrong? From that point on, it's your problem. Take your business elsewhere. No, seriously, take your business elsewhere, please. We're begging you. Go to someone who actually knows what they're selling, because we're an endless void of consumerism and nothing more.

---Incoming sperg---
I ordered a DC adapter for a Pioneer DDJ-SX (dj controller) that didn't work. Did some digging and it was the wrong tip-sleeve. Just for fun, I searched for an AC adapter for a Traktor s4, which is a completely different device that uses a completely different power adapter. Same exact results. Total hardware scam.

I got my money back, but there was no explaining the situation to them, so they could rectify the issue. Local electronic's specialty store - "yes, absolutely. I see the issue here. The adapter advertised for this device requires a tip-positive/sleeve-negative barrel, but our vendor has provided us with an adapter that is quite the opposite! We will pull this product from the shelves and order the correct componet, post haste!"

Just things that Amazon bindi #3459379 will not be able to understand. My local electronics megastore is thriving, because of this.

Conclusion: Amazon is a great retailer... For simpleton shit. 100% dependable for the mindless stuff you repeatedly buy, on a regular basis. You can't really fuck up deodorant or dish soap, but when it comes to any level of uncertainty or any level of specific gadgetry in regards to what you actually need, there's no way Amazon can help you. That's where brick and morter retail stores should come in and if they don't, it's their own fault.

Anonymized patient data is generally ok to share, although Facebook planning to use the anonymized data to identify specific users FB accounts would seem to violate the law in spirit, at the very least

This sounds like one of those utopian ideas they'd praise to high heaven in Wired magazine about how social networks can provide lifesaving medical services to users, when in reality its just a scam to use people's personal medical information for advertising purposes.

I guess people are finding out that there's a reason why Faceberg and other social media programs are free.

I hope Silicon Valley burns to the ground.  Most of their innovations are dildotech/niggertech or more ways to monetize people's personal information.  Any technological innovations that benefit society outside of making it easier to pay a tranny camwhore to use a dragon dildo are a coincidence.

Amazon isn't as cheap as their reputation makes them out to be. Throw in a modicum of product knowledge beyond what's written on the package and you've got Amazon bent over a barrel.

Conclusion: Amazon is a great retailer... For simpleton shit. 100% dependable for the mindless stuff you repeatedly buy, on a regular basis. You can't really fuck up deodorant or dish soap, but when it comes to any level of uncertainty or any level of specific gadgetry in regards to what you actually need, there's no way Amazon can help you. That's where brick and morter retail stores should come in and if they don't, it's their own fault.

I mostly agree but it's not quite that simple.  Retailers have been doing stupid shit like cutting costs ever since the 70's and destroying their comparative advantage in terms of having staff that stopped being experts in what they sell, and then the internet finished them off in the late 2000's because you no longer needed the semi-retarded 19 year old pimping you the items with the biggest profit margins, because you have reviews by paid customers on Amazon and other internet sites which let you make a mostly informed decision on whether to get branded items or knockoffs that work just as good (or break instantly).

That said, Amazon's retail division is a huge loss leader and even if none of the above were true, they'd still dominate, simply because they don't need to make money.  Where they make their profit is by selling Amazon Web Services to federal and state governments for cloud services.  Denninger spells it all out here:

http://market-ticker.org/akcs-www?singlepost=3440722

Also, if you're wondering if they sell their sales data alongside "anonymous" user profiles to marketing companies to try to target you with ads, I'd be amazed if that wasn't a pretty big chunk of change too.  If you search for something on Amazon like a knee brace, you'd better believe that it's making its way to medical companies and very possibly private insurers.

Regarding USPS/taxes, it's technically true, sales taxes are much lower than they would be otherwise because profit margins for sales items are smaller, and USPS doesn't make as much per transaction because I'm sure Amazon has economy of scale ability to negotiate better rates with them.  That's not necessarily a bad thing, but it does mean that instead of state and local taxes, which sales are paid to, are instead being paid at a federal level as income tax or at least not being written off. 

The biggest matter is that for now Amazon is the major player in cloud server services, but that's not necessarily going to be the case forever.  As Denninger said, at some point, other companies are going to figure out how to put out a competing product and ruin their monopoly, as what always happens and is going to be exacerbated by some of the illegal and controversial things they have both done, since technology law has lagged waaaay behind retail and merchant laws but is finally starting to catch up. Facebook, Amazon, etc, are all eventually going to go away just like MySpace, AOL, etc, the rub is that technology market cap was probably 10% when those companies hit their peak as opposed to the biggies now, we've never been through a stage where major internet companies have a couple hundred dollar billion dollar influence on the economy.

Trump is basically right that Amazon is destroying the ability for retailers to compete, and while it's smart to be able to buy stuff at the margins they're allowing now, it's not going to go on forever, so don't count on it.
