WEB: I'll Show You My Algorithm if You'll Show Me Yours

I know my huge enjoyment of this article probably speaks ill of me, but nonetheless, there you have it. Next thing you know I'll be copying Cathy comics in this space. Watch for it.
Amazon Recommendations Understand Area Woman Better Than Husband
Meyers, who has spent the past 15 years with a man who still believes she enjoys attending car shows, said she has kept her Amazon recommendation e-mails a secret from her husband so as not to corrupt the "deep and unstated understanding" between her and the popular website.

"Sure, I could send him the link to my Wish List, but that really defeats the purpose of gifts, as far as I'm concerned," Meyers said.

Ha! I saw that, and had basically the same thought (without the amusing Cathy comment).
