  • Hard news ahead. Ten bucks will look good retrospectively, when prices fall to about a buck, as they did with the other digital media, games, app, tunes, and eventually shows. Books as electrons are a cottage industry; they do not warrant different pricing than say apps. Bad news for Amazon as well, if it hoped to cash in on its monopolistic success. It will be king of an anthill.
