I have been seeing hundred of reviews where the title is "X stars" and the text is something less than 7 words, like "I like it".
Is Amazon somehow forcing this?
As for your problem -- The worst offenders are batteries and razor blades. Expensive items that can be faked by experienced Chinese manufacturers and added to Amazons cache. I will never buy those on Amazon!
I have also run into similar issues where one third party seller whose items are "fullfilled by Amazon" gets good reviews for a product like branded vacuum cleaner bags. Then a shady other seller sees the good reviews and lists their product on the same page. But they substitute inferior crappy generic vacuum bags. Then you have a situation where some of the reviews are 5 star and the rest are 1 star and it all comes down to the seller. I end up having to ask the 5 star people over and over again in the comments, who their seller is. This is ridiculous! And I am aware of the problem. Most people just get ripped off for a product they thought had 5 star reviews. Amazon should fix this.
People use Firefox for primarily one reason - the plugins. The disrespect and arrogance that Mozilla shows by breaking plugins constantly is stunning.
The only reason to stay on Firefox is that it's addons are better. Whatever your need, there's an addon for that.
I even complained to Bezos' personal email about this saying that this attacks Amazon's most valuable asset. They just don't care.
Everytime I see ""I received this product at a discount in exchange for my unbiased review" I die a little. Such a great service being ruined.
FWIW I was never able to get the hub working on the BB Priv. Seems to be a problem, at least on Verizon.
Too bad. The Priv seems to be the last physical keyboard Android phone. Prior to the Priv, I had a Droid 4 which I liked even better (bigger physical keyboard still).
Unfortunately, people like me who need to compose longer emails while on the road are a very small minority. Most people are happy typing one line "text speak" with their fingers or talking to the phone. That's not good enough for me.
Not to mention that the onscreen keyboard takes away from screen real estate.

..and deleting my search history. I don't see what is new here except maybe a fancy new interface.,,,,
It's actually not that simple. People want to download long videos without watching them first. So those videos are not already in the cache. The download helpers download them directly to disk.
I like yahoo mail tons better than Gmail. (I hqave a hard time making sense of google's threaded emails).
I also have not found an RSS newsreader I like better than my.yahoo. I've been using it since 1997.
Forbes won't dare show that page to the Googlebot. Change your useragent and Forbes.com is a pleasant read.
They are of course reliant on Google page rank so the Googlebot gets special treatment.
If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.
