Not only are the suggestions weird, but I suspect they are often lies. "Frequently bought together" usually shows items that are too similar or contradictory to have been actually bought together enough times to make it "frequent," unless the majority of Amazon's purchases are from resellers, in which case the recommendation are ill-targeted at best. You look at a backpack, and it says that it is frequently purchased with another backpack?

There are any number of fuzzy logic problems that the computer will never be better at solving as fast and correctly as a human is, simply because the data will be missing. Everyone who claims that the new robotic car overlords will be better and safer at doing everything for us are hopelessly naive.

I look forward to the day that this post will be dug up from the archives as a jocular look back at how the ludites almost prevented the new age of safe commuting.
