Amazon.com has begun to notify customers who have purchased Kindle e-books from various publishers that they're entitled to a credit, as a result of the legal settlements reached with various e-book publishers in antitrust lawsuits.
Amazon has introduced a program, called Kindle MatchBook, that will let customers download the Kindle ebook version of physical books that they have previously purchased. The price of the ebooks will range from free to $2.99. Books that customers have purchased in print at any point in the past will be eligible for MatchBook, according to the New York Times:

Amazon has announced their iPad competitor and as rumor had it, it's called the Kindle Fire. The biggest news is the price -- only $199 for a 14.6 ounce, 7-in IPS 1024x600 169dpi display. It's dual core, Wi-Fi only, and has only 8GB of storage (plus free Amazon cloud) but again -- $199.
