Y’know what I want? I want to be able to click anything, anywhere, and add it to my amazon.com wishlist. (Note that that is a link to a Google Search on the term “amazon wishlist” and not another shameless plug for my own wishlist.) Like this pendrive, f’rinstance. What a great little toy! I want one. I really, really want one. But I don’t have the cash right now to buy one. And I don’t want to forget about. Is someone at amazon working on this? Dan? I’d think they’d be all over that. Click here, click there, click anywhere. I’m not even restricting this to the web, either. I want to be able to click on a CD at my friend’s house and add it to my wishlist, too. I want to be able to click without, say, having to be sitting at my computer. Dig? Is someone working on that?
