Visual Relationships at Amazon.com
- Here's an interesting visual implementation of the Amazon API. It's almost like flipping through books on the shelf. What's next? A 3D bookstore rendered on the Quake engine?

More Pseudo-Amazon Layout Fun
It used to amaze me that people have entire careers based on ripping off others. Now it's just standard (I apologize for the thousandth post of an amazon.com tabs
comment). The site actually looks like the old Amazon interface hooked up with the current Altavista
site, and created some bizarre, overly-influenced mélange.

The redesign blitzkrieg continues: Webvan
is getting a new look, complete with light influences from Aqua and - yes - amazonesque tabs
. As an added bonus, it won't work with Macs. I'm interested to see how this plays out.

Amazon.com's new navigation
Opened my mailbox and lookee-here, a message from Amazon.com's Jeff Bezo's for me? Yup. Looks like he's not only trying to push every product under the sun, but also acceptance of his company's new navigation.

finally ditched the unsustainable and cluttered one-tab-per-store interface? And if so, is this how they react to their stock falling?

Why tab based interfaces suck
This site finally fell into interface hell. Originally they used tabs as navigation and still are now... BUT it doesn't work...
Watch... every ecommerce company that copied its interface will also fall into the same interface hell...
The others include ebags.com, urbanfetch and more....

Bing! Bing! Amazon moves to two rows of tabs! Interesting . . .
I've been part of dozens of conversations about what they were going to do when it *just got too wide*. The Amazonization Effect principle dictates that it will take 30-60 days before other big etailers follow suit because now it's OK to do it
Just in case I'm a test case here, I've posted the gif here

Wow, check Amazon's new holiday look
. They've added even more new product lines (home improvement, software, and video games). How many folder tabs can they stuff into that navigation bar?
