"Man, that was a difficult labor!" That was the husband, yesterday, after we left the store with my new iPhone. He's right. It took me nearly a year decide what phone to get. Why the hesitation?

Amazon shocked consumers, publishers and authors on January 29 when it pulled Macmillan books from direct sale on Amazon.com over an e-book pricing dispute. Amazon and Macmillan each believed that its model was the best, and that the other company would have to cave to its demands.
