Comment Re:Life after Amazon (Score 1) 258

1) I've never had Amazon sit on an order for a week without a notice that the item wasn't in stock.

2) I just went to Amazon and ran a test. The shipping price is *not* built into the item price. I ordered one, the two comupter mice. Same mouse each time. The shipping was $8.29 and $8.49. So your statement is demonstrably false.
