Same-day Christmas delivery gifts (Click to check out graphic used - you won't believe it.)
Examiner.com ^ | 12/24/10 | Paula Mooney

Posted on 12/25/2010 9:24:25 PM PST by ruralvoter

For those truly last-minute Christmas gift givers, Amazon.com is highlighting their gift cards as a gift with same-day Christmas delivery.

They've got Kindle books you can send to anyone with an email address -- and who doesn't have an email address these days?

And Amazon is pretty innovative in the ways they allow folks to send their same-day Christmas gifts, either via e-mail or by a Facebook friend wall post.

“23 minutes in hell” (a rescue or escape from one of the 9/11 infernos?)

Well it might take someone’s mind off the blisteringly cold weather!

`23 Minutes in Hell’? That’s a thoughtful gift. And that reminds me, did you know Charlie Sheen is dead? Jet ski accident with the former president of Peru. Really tragic.

'23 minutes in hell' must be about waiting for all the Examiner's pop ups, ad ons and flash graphics to load. They've got some good content but I've learned not to click on them unless I need to go mow the lawn or grout the tub.

Amazon sells 7.5 million titles and we are focusing on one book.

How’d they pick THIS one. Christian best seller? Check. Available on Kindle? Check. Ok, release the ad!

What a POS website - no matter where you click to be able to scroll, it pops up ads.

Couldn't even read it - just too much work. After the first ad invades a page, I'm already in the process of closing the whole thing out. You'd think folks who make those sites would learn.

Do you smell a blog-pimp? This post would have been fine with a link straight to Amazon, or the graphic. Instead, it's a link to the Examiner blog.

And it's not posted in the Bloggers section, it's posted in News, though it's not news.

I wonder what humblegunner is doing this time of night? :)

I don’t know who to blame for this one. Amazon very rarely crams its foot this far down their throat. I smell possible sabotage.

My computer speakers were making clicking, popping, and bullurp sounds while trying to download that page. What a mess. Excuse me while I clear out the thousands of cookies just downloaded.

Look buddy I’m not a blog pimp. Do your research on my postings. I have no affiliation with that website or the book. I have ad blockers on my computer so I was not aware of the popup ads on the website. I apologize for giving you the link. It is your problem if you presume a nefarious motivation on my part.

I don’t think the graphic actually links to Amazon. (It would not be an official affiliate graphic.) This website would have chosen this book graphic and grabbed it off of the Amazon website?

Yeah, it’s a jpg hosted on examiner.com. Is the Examiner trying to be really cutesy?

What a POS website

Opened just fine for me. Of course, I run Firefox and the following add-ons just for such sites.

Adblock plus

Flashblock

Those two pretty much let any web site load with no trouble. No pop ups, no flash, no problem.

Might also be good to run Kaspersky or another big name antivirus. Some viruses attack through web browers. Better yet, MacOS or Linux.

Apology accepted -- and I wasn't bitching in earnest, just tweaking a little. I do suggest that you post threads that point to blogs in "Bloggers", since that's what it's for.

It's Christmas, I was just poking fun at you, please don't take it hard. Merry Christmas!

Worse than that. The image belongs to Amazon (which the blog admits below the image), but was copied to the blog site and hosted from there.

I suppose that circumvents the bandwidth-stealing issue, at the cost of a copyright issue...
