More Gold Box Misses

Earlier today as I purchased my new Sony DSC-P71 Cyber-Shot 3MP Digital Camera, I was treated to these Amazon.com Gold Box Offers.

.: Time [MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION]: not really interested, but this is closer to hitting the mark than most of my Gold Box offers have been!

.: Hamilton Beach 49291 Aroma Express 12-Cup Coffeemaker, White: I don't drink coffee and Steven just won a $160 Capresso MT500 coffee maker. Definitely don't need this.

.: Strange, but I got a "We just ran out of this item" message. Way to waste one of my offers.

.: Panasonic ES8003W Men's Wet/Dry Rechargeable Linear Shaver with 3D: I guess Steven might like this, but why do they offer me, a female who's never bought any men's products from Amazon, a shaver?

.: Opus 25153 Expeditions Copper Hummingbird Feeder: I guess I could hang this on the porch, but since I live in a condo and have no plants accessible to hummingbirds, not very useful!
