Amazon, wish lists, and why they don't work.

So you log in to and go to a friend's wish list. You select a product, and proceed to the checkout. You choose her address from the list of delivery addresses available (yours, hers). You hit the "dispatch to this address" button.

You get the following:

    *** We're sorry. This item can't be delivered to a Wish List or gift registry address. ***

Amazon, you bunch of useless tossers, I bet that when this friend of mine put this item on her wish list you didn't her that she'll never get it as a gift. I'm gradually getting tired of organisations which aren't competent to do things which I fondly imagined were part of their core business, and it's a disappointment to discover that Amazon aren't competent to sell books.
