Dear Buddy,

The world seems to get crazier every day. Even before the pandemic things seemed to be moving faster. It wasn't so long ago there was righteous gnashing of teeth about people sharing pictures of their dinner on social media. Fast forward a few short years and my cat has a fairly substantial Instagram following.

It's a reminder that the craziness will always be there, sometimes more obvious than others, and we've got to learn to take it all in our stride or it'll trip us up and we'll be left behind.

But enough philosophy for now. Let's get to the news.

 "Genius is two percent inspiration, ninety-eight percent perspiration."

Amazon put their foot down on price gouging sellers...but not themselves?

The concept of supply and demand has driven business and decided prices since the dawn of time. If you've got something not many people have and lots of people need it, it's only sensible to increase the price.

Amazon doesn't think so. They've clarified that 'price gouging' isn't allowed from sellers, despite the fact they're pretty happy to do it with their own products. Listings can and will be deactivated if your products are breaching the rules, even though the crawlers that are supposed to detect gouging are...how can I put this nicely...overly strict?

Heading to the High Street, Amazon Style

Potentially dangerous news for all you clothes sellers out there - Amazon are launching their own actual physical clothes shop. The first one is going to be in California and will have lots of fancy gadgets like hand scanners and touch screens in the changing rooms.

It seems like the plan is to have a big warehouse full of changing rooms where shoppers order the clothes to try on and the staff bring them. Basically like a VR game without the V.

Amazon says of it: "We're so excited to offer a shopping experience that inspires discovery and combines the best of shopping on Amazon.com with the benefit of touching and trying on items to ensure a great fit."

They haven't revealed which brands will be available just yet. Hopefully they'll put yours in stock!
