In addition to the reliably excellent post about pricing from Kristin Katherine Rusch (http://kriswrites.com/) as part of her ongoing series about Discovery in independent publishing, which I'm certain you already have planned pointing to, I found what could be considered supporting evidence in a post by Rachel Willmer on TechCrunch (http://techcrunch.com/2014/01/15/ten-things-you-may-not-know-about-ebook-prices/) that points to actual sales data collected by Luzeme about price versus sales (and revenue) in both the US and the UK.
This is something that the casual reader frequently isn't understanding, but which makes a huge difference in the success and failure of products.
Yes. The Guardian article that the 9to5Mac article refers to deals with the issue in much better detail. Though longer, it is worth the read.
Unlike the portion quoted at 9to5Mac, it is actually pretty balanced. Not too great a surprise that 9to5Mac emphasized the Apple side of things.
As they say, " It is a tale of vision, of technical brilliance, dedication, and camaraderie. It is also a tale of deceit, of treachery, and of betrayal. It is a tale that has largely remained untold."
I can certainly agree that its closing days were certainly typified by the deceit and betrayal and the technical brilliance at its founding is still remarkable.
Might be worth a weekly visit to follow this.
Could this be a sign that Apple is responding to the wishes for more openness in IOS?
One of the more surprising findings is that there are both fewer people alone in these public spaces than there were 25+ years ago and that a greater proportion of these people in public spaces are now female. The latter may be a combination of the changing roles of women in society (many more now work outside the home) and an increased perception of security on their part, perhaps aided by the ubiquitous safety offered by mobile phones.
Can any women talk about how mobile phones might have made them feel more or less secure when traveling? This might be something that differs greatly between age groups.
This is one of those views that the local weather doesn't show, but would really capture the attention of science-minded children and adults.
