There's obviously a lot of scams and fraud on there. Some shady people are making faking products, raking in loads of cash, and then not delivering. Can kickstarter do more? I don't know if there's a way for them to hold part of the funds in a trust or something until makers start delivering, or if they can verify peoples identity so they can get sued easier if they don't deliver. But it's clear that their business model profits off of this. The legit creators get screwed, the fans funding them get screwed, and only the scammer and Kickstarter benefits. They should be doing more.

Don't be fooled by their website that looks like it's from 2003. It's still one of the best sources of obscure fans and PC parts. Stuff like LED lights and controllers, air coolers, water coolers and blocks. Pretty much anything you need to overclock your rig and make it look great.

They have lots of interesting articles about camera technology, upcoming products, and more. There's great discussions in the blog comments. If you're into photography and if you're into checking out new gear, it's very fascinating.

They have some very talented employees. But they're sinking fast with their rush to the right. Tucker and a few others should jump before the ship sinks!

I bought a slim minimalist wallet from them a few years ago. It's held up pretty well. They have pretty good quality and nice designs. I'm considering using them again.

They took my phone numbers and address and other private info off all of those phonebook sites so I don't have to worry about identity theft, spam calls, and other big problems. Their weekly reports show me all they did to keep me safe and its working so far.

They have a number of tasty fruit teas. Try something new like cherry or pineapple. There's some fun options. They ship things out in very classy packaging too. Only tea I didn't like is their green tea... I guess I'll stick with the fruity ones.

Paid cash for some services. Asked to pay in full. Afterwards, I got another bill from them. They do this repeatedly check their other reviews online. Shady, unethical business practices that should be illegal.

It's a good Apple rumors site. Lots of news about new processors and machines coming out. Nice community on the forum. The best part of the site is their buyer's guide. They tell you when a new version of some product (iPhone, iPad, MacBook, etc) is expected to be released. This way you can always plan a purchase ahead.

Anytime I need parts for fixing up some gaming rigs, I come here. They have a good selection, though sometimes hot new items are out of stock for a few weeks. The one time I needed to return something, they gave me 0 hassle. I'll use them again.

Really shady company that shadow bans and manipulates. Has different rules depending on your politics. Refuses to verify and blue-checkmark certain people based on their politics. They need to focus more on transparency and objective ethical behavior.

They have a large store with many products, though often it's the cheap plastic junk and not the quality goods. And to top it off, their prices are no longer better than many alternatives. That said, they have a wide variety, and their shipping usually is reliable.

Their web services are top notch, albeit a bit pricey.

Jeff Bezos is a trouble-maker though. I don't like supporting him when I can avoid it. I have no problem with him gaining wealth, but he wants to buy up lots of media lately. That could be concerning.

They have some talented anchors and good production values, but they have an agenda. If you read their headlines carefully, half of their news involves actual mind-reading. They say things like "Trump does X because he wants to do Y" all of the time. If you look at it carefully, you'll realize that their interpretation of events is literal mind-reading. I wish I was making this up, but I'm not.
