Amazon’s caves on price structure

Bezos sadly spending his days on the basement stair dressing up as his hero Austin Powers

It’s like the publishers want Amazon’s Kindle¬† to fail. They leaned on Bezos to raise the price of ebooks from the affordable and sensible price of $9.99 to prices between $12.99 and $14.99. Preposterous! Is Bezos pig latin for oNay allsBay? I forget how that works, but jeezus, at least until today, Amazon could effectively compete on price. Now they can’t even do that. Apparently the RDF for the iPad release¬† is widening and taking a grip on the ebook market and Bezos is utterably helpless to stop it. He’s cracking up so bad they may need to get the net.
