    The wouldn't be caught dead list

    Many eshops feature "wish lists", to which you can dad what you, you have it, wish. But sometimes you fall into something you wouldn't be caught dead reading, or using, or whatever. Sometimes, there's an specific reason for that, something you've read or heard or whatever. Well, there should be a way of creating that kind of lists. If you add something to a wish list, you later forget why it's there, and then you get it as a gift, it's no big deal. Maybe you'd had wished something else more, but, boy, if you add to the wishlist unknowingly, or some wiseacre friend bestows upon you something on your wouldn't be caught dead list, you'll have to bear it on your conscience. Or hide it. Or sacrifice some small animal.
    Come on, entrepreneurs, what're you thinking about? Set it up!

    Hi, JJ!!

    Huh...

    I guess it is time to research a way which would provide the best connected (or wanted) gifts! :)

    So, through that way the e-shop would show the most wished/wanted gifts from the owner's wish list. Of course, this should be based on previous purchases made by the customer.

    Who is the best connected gift? :)

    Best Regards!

    Marcelo

    I think that's mostly what Amazon does with its recommendations. Eventually, all content you give to Amazon (purchases, reviews, lists) end up in some data mining algorithm.
    There's no way to provide it with things you would not approach even with a two meter pole.
