Granted, there are plenty of things to waste you time on, no matter where in “the tubes” you are, but I just ran across a new one that, while yes it is probabaly inefficient, and a waste of time, is still quite cool. Â It is the new (to me) Amazon Windowshop.
Probabaly the best way to think about Amazon Windowshop is wandering around aimlessly through a bookstore/music store and just looking at whatever happens to catch your eye. Â All without the requisite trip down to the mall.
The flash based site, is responsive (assuming you have a decent broadband provider) and has clips/trailers for the movies, sound samples from the CDs and even reads you the dust cover from books. It is a fun way to discover something new, when you don’t already know exactly what you are looking for, and just want something that grabs your interest.
While this came off sounding like an advertisement, I assure you it is not. Â It is just cool.
