Amazon is stuffing its search results pages with ads • Recode
Rani Molla:
<p>Sponsored ads allow vendors to bid auction-style to have their products show up when consumers type in a related search term. If you’re Duracell, for example, you can pay to have your product show up above or among search results when someone types in “batteries” — or “Energizer.”

When searching for a specific product — “Kellogg’s Corn Flakes,” for example — ads for Kellogg’s own Frosted Flakes and competitor Nature’s Path Corn Flakes both show up as sponsored results first.

And in an unscientific Recode test, these types of ads showed up for every search term, from the vague to the hyperspecific:

<img src="https://cdn.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/G2pDzGOA2ZyA4qvCMXDqEVAj8FM=/0x0:5001x3615/1520x0/filters:focal(0x0:5001x3615):no_upscale()/cdn.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_asset/file/12887467/Amazon_products_3x7_01.png" width="100%" />

“Nobody is scrolling beyond the first page when they do a search,” Jason Goldberg, SVP of commerce at SapientRazorfish, a digital marketing agency, told Recode. “If you want to be discoverable, you have to find a way to show up in search results.”

To get that prime visibility, brands are responding with more cash. Spending on sponsored products in Amazon’s search increased 165% in the second quarter of 2018 compared with a year earlier, according to data from marketing agency Merkle.

The competition for brands to bid on their own or others’ keywords is fierce, and is leading toward what Goldberg called a “perfectly escalating arms race where all the trends are to spend more money to buy more ads to have better visibility on Amazon.”</p>

I've noticed this; Amazon isn't bound, as far as I can tell, by the requirements on other search engines to label ads "prominently". The only positive thing is that if you're actually determined to buy product A, then an ad for product B probably won't do it. The annoyance comes when you accidentally click on the ad product thinking it's part of the organic listings. Which can happen on Google too, of course.

Keeping Up Appearances by Ulan
As had now become his habit, Glorfindel strode in to Erestor's office with nary a knock or warning, and proclaimed: "I told Celegwen that we are together."

Erestor looked up from his work. "The persistent archer?" he asked placidly, despite the fact that he and Glorfindel were most definitely not, to his knowledge, together. "I see. What did she say?"

A Gleam Of White In The Dim Land by TheLionInMyBed
Afterwards the tale was told only by those that had loved her. It was translated, for her kinsman Elrond Half-elven, by Bilbo Baggins who brought his own Hobbitish misinterpretations of Noldorin custom to the text. So when the stories said that she was not wholly unwilling, while they were not wrong, they were rather missing the point.

Overview ‹ Spatial Flux: Body and Architecture in Space — MIT Media Lab
Zero gravity (space) could be a fundamental stepping stone in the way we approach design, as it forces us to critique architectural language itself; for example, in zero gravity there is no such thing as a floor. What’s more, the architectural material we would normally employ to create a “floor” now becomes ambiguous. A material that was once “floor topside” and “ceiling underside," no longer has “sides."
