Okay -- this is it. I'm off the net until the market "comes back." Let know when it's safe. LOL.
Meanwhile, it's Lana Del Rey time.
All this hand-wringing about google, et al, tracking me and sending me ads based on my (perceived) interests. I love it.
Today, this (Huusk, Japan) popped up on my blog. Who knew?
I love knives. I will definitely have fun with this. Generally, it's been my experience, when targeted, I am sent ads for high quality, generally more-than-I want-to-pay-for items but, nonetheless, items I love to view.
Targeted ads are completely different than spam e-mail in which I am asked to review products of which I have no interest and would never answer. And also so much better than robo-calls. By the way, I have lots of fun with telemarketers. When I get a call and have nothing else going on, I love bantering with the telemarketer until "they" hang up. LOL.
So, back to Huusk, Japan.
And then to Amazon.
Premium kitchen knives:
- Brooklyn Knife Co.
- lots of Japanese knives, but no Huusk
I generally won't order something if it's not available on Amazon.
Has Amazon usurped Consumer Reports, UL-Certified, etc?
But the ad got me looking.
