I was looking at a book yesterday and saw it was also available in eBook format. I was dubious about how well it would work on my Touch. I also noticed there was an annotation that stated "optimized for larger screens" so - I sent a sample to my Kindle for PC app to see how well it actually works BEFORE I shelled out $15 for the book.

Amazon is in between the two, as they do provide an ongoing service.

How does Amazon provide an ongoing service?

Hmmmn... I'm not sure that I agree. I mean, if I buy a Jeep, the car itself is covered under warranty, so Jeep is obligated to make sure my CAR works. But it's not up to them where I get gas, or whether I use Pennzoil or Valvoline.

They sell book devices. And books. But you're in no way obligated to GET your books from them. And I'm not sure they're obligated to make sure you can get EVERY book you want for that particular device.

One way that Amazon provides an ongoing service in that they provide updates to the material as changes are made. I have received numerous update notifications for books that I have gotten, To update many various things from simple spelling errors to extreme formatting errors.

So you mean that Best Buy won't get the CD that is a Target exclusive just because I dont want to go into Target?

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 8, 2013 1:14:49 PM PST
Correct.

And I won't go into Target, either.

Same here. I haven't been in a Target in over 20 years or a K-Mart for that matter and don't ever plan too again.

My panties are still in a wad from Halloween 2010 (I think), when they mocked the mom's (awesomely creative, if you ask me) homemade Iron Man costume, insinuating that ONLY a $39.99 costume from Target would make children happy. I've never set foot in one, since.

Whispernet is an ongoing service just as much as your cell service is, but with an unusual pricing model--free for the service itself, with money made from the content, sometimes ads, and possibly device cost.

They also update the device in other minor ways, but that is more akin to your car warranty analogy. Exclusivity has no bearing on whether it is a service.

Agreed, they have no obligation to make sure I can get every book for the device. I deleted my earlier posts suggesting I thought that, to avoid making the world a bit stupider.

What you say about the updates and Whispernet makes sense. But glad that you recognized that it's not up to Amazon that every book is in a format that works on every device which is capable of reading Kindle books. (-:
