"@ BOB- Chris specifically said this should be fun reading. Contortions are not fun reading. At least not for me. "

"I'm glad to hear that my Nook HD guide came in so handy. I actually still do use my Nook HD every now and then, while my Nexus is charging. It really is a decent little tab, and will make a great "loaner" if I ever have a guest who'd like to surf while I do, or play Android games versus each other. "

"Wanna try! I've been wondering about flashing CM11 to my tablet (Asus Smart Tab 10 in) for a while now. CM11 even resurrected my ancient ZTE Skate to usable condition. It's a wonder anyone uses stock ROMS any more - and CM is fabulous for resurrecting aged hardware. "

"@gina, Unfortunately, yes. Although Chris wrote a piece recently that indicates an official Android app is coming soon. Hopefully the official app will work for you folks in the UK. "

"What I found interesting was that Amazon seems to be saying the 70/30 split is the right one for books priced under $9.99. The doomsayers have been predicting Amazon would reduce the split to self-published authors. This implies they aren't thinking that since self-published authors are both publishers and authors and would get the entire 70%. "

"One more comment. I'm currently editing a book that's a followup to this NY Times bestseller from HarperOne: http://www.amazon.com/Darwins-Doubt-Explosive-Origin-Intelligent/dp/0062071483 The new book is coming from a much smaller publisher and will have the author, Stephen Meyer, and others answering the book's critics. Since I know how to do scholarly books, the publisher has me handling some of the editing. Keep in mind that this book is much shorter and not intended to be as scholarly or complex ..."

"Response to Bob's "Cannot wait to see the contortions that Michael goes through to say that Amazon is a horrible company for wanting author’s to get a higher percentage from their Big 5 Dinosaur publisher." Check out this ebook I have on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Tolkien-Warriors--House-Wolfings-Inspired/dp/1587420783 I did ever bit of the work to publish it, including proofing it word for word with a rare-book edition of the original and writing up the links between Tolkien and William Morris, ..."

Michael W. Perry on "Amazon says it would be content with 30% of revenue if Hachette e-books were $9.99 - Posted on July 29, 2014


"I don't know what to make of what Amazon is saying. Quote: "A key objective is lower e-book prices. Many e-books are being released at $14.99 and even $19.99. That is unjustifiably high for an e-book. With an e-book, there’s no printing, no over-printing, no need to forecast, no returns, no lost sales due to out-of-stock, no warehousing costs, no transportation costs, and there is no secondary market — e-books cannot be resold as used ..."
