Oh, they are out to "get me", alright.  They've admitted as much 
repeatedly.  Otherwise I wouldn't be getting all these ads and 
emails saying essentially:

    "Hey, we totally "get" you, and to prove it, here's a list of 
    cool stuff you can buy from us or our friends".

Heck, almost the entire cost of my Android phone is paid for 
that way.  Not to mention virtually the entire cost of the Internet.

I'm OK with that -- it's the Internet, and they're mostly sort of 
up front (in a sleazy way) about it.  I just want to keep it out of 
email.  Especially high volume email, like this list :-).
