    Every review I've read says it sucks. They set the bar pretty low. Too bad, I like Amazon. Ah well, we'll see what happens tomorrow.

    I'm a big fan of Amazon too, but I am turned off by no Mac support, and the fact that my PC (which is still going strong and suits my needs) is not quite fast enough. Its CPU is 1.4 GHz, Amazon requires 1.5 GHz. Sure, I probably could still play the videos, but obviously my PC is on the edge. How many users out there have even slower PCs than me? Not everyone wants or needs to replace a perfectly usable computer, just because it's a few years old.

    Also it hijacks your system. Installing call home features, with no config for not auto launching in Windows. To uninstall you have to sign in to amazon.com which baffles me.
