"Your Message Center shows you messages from Amazon.com that are generated based on your Favorites, your wishlist, and your community settings."
Amazon already sends email notifications based on user requests (you can be warned when a product is available for order, or when a search query turns out new results). Now they introduce this "message center" page that consolidates notifications based on your profile, and looks like an e-mail client (not unlike what CJ does in the affiliate field). I’m surprised that Amazon.com, besides e-mail and web pages, doesn’t offer push options to IM clients.
I'm CEO of an online trade publishing firm in the marketing and defense verticals. We try to make news and data digestible and useful in an environment that is more noisy each day. This personal blog mixes my thoughts and interests on politics, business, software, and more, based on my business and personal experiences. Over the years I have posted items that turned out spectacularly wrong, and a few posts that stood the test of times better. Personal views only.
