Amazon Shrewdly Realizes You Have a Computer

Amazon has sent me one of their periodic e-mails, asking me to help them sell some stuff. (Perhaps money is tight this month, and it's either hit me up, or scrounge under the couch cushions in the break room -- and you don't want to go in there after the third-shift telemarketing guys get done with it.)

This time, they've hit on the brilliant scheme of selling computer peripherals. Makes sense, right? If you're reading this, you're almost certainly on some sort of computing device. Sure, your smartphone might not need any of these things yet, but just you wait...

So, here are some of the things that might interest you:
  • the Computer Accessories & Supplies homepage, where you can get mice and printer paper and just about anything else for what Golden Age SF writers assumed we would be calling a 'puter by now.
  • If you're easily led, you may prefer to just look at the Bestsellers in Electronics page.
  • There's also something Amazon calls an "Outlet", which implies but doesn't directly say that the products therein will be at low or discounted prices.
  • But if you have a short attention span and demand special pricing, then the Today's Deals page is just what you need.
Finally, I'll just throw in a banner, for the three of you who haven't installed an ad-blocking add-on. It's pretty snoozy, though:
