Visual Relationships at Amazon.com

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?

Whoa! Amazon.com's

Whoa! Amazon.com's added a new tab to it's menubar. And it's got MY name on it!

Yet another design rip-off.

Yet another design rip-off. This really bugs me. I have no problem with sites stealing layout and code, but actual graphics should be a no-no.

More Pseudo-Amazon Layout Fun

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 nwe navigation

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.

Has Amazon.com 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

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!

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.

The design team over at Amazon.com needs to up their medication.

The design team over at Amazon.com needs to up their medication. What was once the most tabbed-interface on the web, but still quite useful, is now a raging mess of yahoo-category-style links that are all the same color. This reminds me of the altavista redesign a few months back. I wonder if they'll lose some customers on this one.

Apple mergers with amazon.com

Apple mergers with amazon.com Well not really but why is everyone copying the tab based interface... it is ugly, not expandable and assumes the end user is a complete moron.

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?
