One of my favorite features of Amazon is its recommendations, the sort of amiable Big Brother aspect of it. A little unnerving, then, to get an automated e-mail telling me about its recommendations for me. Yes, that is Bruce Springsteen, Radiohead, Counting Crows, Carrie Underwood, Gnarls Barkley, and Mary Poppins.
That's the quintessential picture of me, right there. Amazon.com, you got me.
