    Wha happened?

    Just looked at CNDow, thought it looked a lot like Amazon, looked at Amazon, and it says they are in partnership!

    I wasn't too surprised by this announcement. How many companies have merged with Amazon now? I know that Borders has.

    Amazon also sells for Toys R Us, Target, Baby's R Us, Marshall Fields, & Office Depot as "Featured Partners". IIRC they had a deal going with Circuit City too.
