Did anyone else notice, for the past few days, in conjunction with the vaporous announcement, that the number of "kindle edition" hits on the Amazon site via Google is now shrinking daily, and down to not much more than 1000? I almost hate to attach any meaning to this.

As a frequent business traveler, I really like the idea of the wireless newspaper delivery and ability to carry my sci-fi on one thin device. This whole failure to launch is a real downer. As a marketing guy, I think they really missed the momentum here. I can only speculate that something wasn't ready.

Yes, I've been charting the drop. It can only mean two things:

one: They have put up all the Kindle edition titles they were planning on.

two: They are more careful about the titles not appearing on the website.
