A neologism has hit the news: Bezoism. I was late getting to a recent WSJ weekend edition where the article was covered. However, it is old as Bezos, himself, uses it (blog on GitHub). Notice, the whole of the Deep Learning paradigm's offerings where we can, at last, get real about how technology is ruining our lives. Bezos ought to be thanked for playing his role which we can analysis (way more than 'deep' learning every could).

Wait, this is new: Arriving today.
Gosh, for me, this is another Rip Van Wrinkle thing. These have always been due to some shenanigans of business, usually related to financial mischief.
Disclosure: Never bought anything via Amazon. Skirt around their site when on the web as much as I can. Have looked at a page or two with respect to ratings of products. Mostly wondered what motivated this form of mischief which is not sustainable and is so much a poster boy for how things ought not be.
