Amazon, go to hell

Amazon opened MP3 music store. As iTunes is blocked here, it resulted in my ‘yay’ – I opened it and started browsing the catalogue. I immediately got few nice suggestions, and used the 1click shopping – it suggested installing download agent, so I did. Then it confirmed my billing details, and in the end, with me all happy and shining it spew out:

We are sorry…

Go to hell, Amazon.

  1. first page of amazon’s mp3 page show the notice “Please note that Amazon MP3 is currently only available to US customers.” you was unlucky to miss it.

  2. If Domas did overlook that warning, it is understandibly easy to do. Most of the pages on Amazon are cluttered & distracting — which forces anyone with a specific goal in mind (e.g., finding items from a list of out-of-print books) to ignore most of the page.

    I bet if Amazon put a link on their front page which would send anyone who clicked on it US$500.–, only a handful would click on it; everyone else would be busy trying to find the specific items they want to buy.
