Diminishing returns

While browsing Amazon tonight for a new television, I was presented with the following offer:

Yes -- Amazon suggested that since I'm looking at a large-format television, I might be interested in buying two of them. First I was flattered, but now I'm starting to feel a bit patronized. Are they trying to make some kind of subtle statement about how many times I've looked at this TV on their site?

This also brings up the question of how these "Better Together" offers are generated in the first place: is it via humans (obviously not very smart ones), or from past purchases... by people who impulse-buy a second television.
