This is splorp.

Well, Amazon has gone and done it. They finally opened a Canadian site and ding dang it if they’re not blatantly waving the “we’ve got your price beat” flag right under my nose. Even with my frequent spnder membership discount, the very same book over at is nearly 20% less expensive at Amazon. That’s just tormenting. But, wait… that’s not all. Having a less substantial, but more focused product offering and barely an inkling of the personalized point of purchase fluff that crowds the user experience of their American tab-fabulous superstore, makes the Canadian site positively vintage. And a damn sight faster than the competition. Oh, why do they tease me so? Why? Via, because I totally forgot to check it out after I read about it yesterday.
