Follow-up to Amazon Recommends… from El Meu Blog

Of course, because I bought aforementioned Shrek 2, I would love to buy a Logic3 i-Station Docking Station for iPod and iPod Mini … if only I had an iPod to dock. But thankfully a little further on, the Black iPod 4Gb Nano also gets a promotion… the most logical thing for one to buy after acquiring A Short History of Nearly Everything..

Panasonic SD253 Breadmaker with Nut Dispenser and I quote, Recommended because you said you owned Shrek 2

Last time I admit to owning anything!

LMAO.. finally they recommend that I buy a DVD player – and not because of this damn Shrek 2 dvd, but the bloody digital camera I bought once upon a time.

Think it's time for me to hit the sack. 'Night folks

Amazon Recommends…

Just a random observation (well, that's about 90% of my blog probably!), but this evening I'm wasting a bit of time browsing through, on the lookout for ideas for my Xmas list and what I might be able to get for those nearest and dearest to me.

Anyway, for the first time ever, I thought I'd investigate the "Amazon recommends…" feature – of course Amazon has recorded every purchase I've ever made, and now feels it's in a position to offer me top tips for my next purchase. But some of it is just so damn surreal!

Ok, recommending a pair of headphones because I bought Shrek 2 on DVD… I can see some tenuous link there. But Sin City on DVD because I bought "A Short History of Nearly Everything"? A book called "100 Naked Girls" because I bought.. wait for it.. a memory card for my digital camera (I don't want to know what the connection is there..); and finally, a Jamie Oliver Flour Shaker because I bought a book called "Watching the English"?!?!?!?! I'm not usually one for swearing, even in acronyms, but WTF?!

And if that weren't random enough for ya

I just read that we can now include Latex in our entries…

{\rm Post}(f) = \cup_{c\in C(f)}\overline{\cup_{n\geq 1} f^n(c)}

where of course C(f) is the critical set…..

Sorry, the mathematician in me just wanted to try it out!
