Hey, I have 2 reasons why that is the case.
Because the main idea behind my query, is that I am researching a potential future purchase of mine for an iPhone 5S on the next Black Friday in November. So, I want to know how things are working with the iTunes store, both in terms of functionality and price. And I want to see how much does my favorite music cost, but I am unable to do that as I am using a Windows computer right now.
The second reason is kinda weird, given that Amazon is consistently in the top 10 most visited websites in the world - I find it super cluttered. I can't wrap my head around how do so many people successfully use it on a daily basis. Whenever I go on Amazon, I am presented with a huge chunk of relatively meaningless text, non-properly-aligned with pictures of lower quality mixed with some higher resolution ones. At that point my mind is already exhausted. I want to search to buy, for example, the iPhone 5S that I mentioned earlier. I type into the search bar, hit Enter and am presented with scores of pages of products loosely related to an actual Apple-produced iPhone 5S. Heck, I even got a diaper once on the first page of those results... Even after refinement of the search inquiry I find it hard to understand the website. I was looking for a brand new iPhone 5S factory-unlocked, off-contract, 16GB, in Silver and I put in all the filters, yet I got some obscure search results, such as screen protectors for the iPhone. I don't know about you, but I haven't heard of screen protectors with 16GB of flash memory. When I finally found what appeared to be the product I was looking for and seemed legit, the picture below which says, 'Certified Refurbished Smartphones', confused me, since in the filter options, under condition, I had put in, 'New'. Now I wasn't sure whether this is just an ad on the Amazon website, urging me to search for refurbished iPhones at a lower price, or does it mean that the device I am looking at in this very listing is refurbished, even though both the description and the title point otherwise. At this point, I become too overwhelmed and quit using Amazon.
It's safe to say that when it comes to technologies, I prefer shopping directly from the manufacturer.
With Apple, in contrast, I was able to find the songs and albums, that I wanted, in about 30 seconds to 1 minute. The only downside there, as you have found out by now, is that the price-tags are not shown to me.
I hope this clears up my thoughts, mate. ...But seriously, I can't understand how come I can't seem to navigate my way around Amazon.com, even though millions of people do it non-stop. I guess, it's just me.
