pricing issues

kindle set original price @ 9.99

similar to Apple Itunes

still paid publishers price requested

took a loss on sale of most books

was done because kindle expensive

current focus is getting more kindles out there

I-pad told publishers to set own price

forced kindle into higher prices, destructive to kindle, destructive to Ipad

publishers charging too much for 0 production costs, counterargument: not considering, editting, formatting

I-Pad vs. Kindle

I-pad as e-reader controversy

does too much to be considered e-reader?

fear that Kindle will become obsolete

too much gizmo for e-reader: new netbook

screen is backlight, kiss of death for an ereader

has helped expand the market for certain genres

Ellora's Cave

erotic romance mainly epublish

Now traditional publishers started carrying genre

more crosss/mixed genre work appearing
