Amazon Bloated?

Having been recently shaped down to 72kbps on my Cable broadband (only 2 more days of pain!), I've just discovered that Amazon's web pages have become so large, that despite several attempts, I am unable to open a book entry on their site without the page timing out. Presumably this is because no one in the US has dial-up speed internet access anymore. I had noticed a significant pause previously when accessing at full cable speeds, but a few seconds delay seemed acceptable.

Does this mean Amazon is losing sales to dial-up customers?
