Is Adobe such an agressive company?

Perhaps Amazon is trying to tell me to beware of Adobe sales and marketing tactics? It kind of seems that way in this email message I just received from Amazon:

We've noticed that customers who have expressed interest in books by Adobe Systems Inc. have also ordered "The SAS Fighting Techniques Handbook, New and Revised" by Terry White. For this reason, you might like to know that this book will be released on June 1, 2007. You can pre-order your copy at a savings of $4.39 by following the link below.

Following the link reveals that I can learn about:

* Survival, evasion, resistance, and escape techniques
* How to use the sun's shadow to determine time and location
* How to board an aircraft at 130 mph
* How to read footprints in the field

Handy stuff for when I next need to have a look at a PDF file :-)
