What's up with Amazon?

Something's going on with Amazon.com and agency (?) titles. They either appear as "Not currently available" or "This title is not available for customers from: United States" . This includes the Kindle Daily Deal for today
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000OCXI3K/

I first noticed this because I have an ebook wish list and saw that the prices disappeared and the button changed from "Buy with 1-Click" to "See all buying options".

Anyone know what's up?

It is the big agencies isn't it? I had 99% Penguin and agencies on my wish list and they're not available any more, so I thought it was a problem with Penguin. I checked some Simon and Schuster books and they're the same way. I can't find anything online about a dispute, so I have no idea.

I just checked my Kindle library, I can't download my previously purchased agency titles either. Surely it's a computer glitch.

I still haven't found any details yet. There is a thread on the Amazon Kindle forums, but other than noting that customer service knows about the issue, there really isn't anything else.

I use V'Ger to remove the DRM code infesting my ebooks. It's also good for removing any carbon-based units I find irritating.

What's 'V'Ger'? I googled it and all I got was pages and pages of Star Trek stuff.

Must be a glitch. Only ebooks with the notation "sold by Amazon Digital Services, Inc." have prices.

It is from star Trek the Motion Picture.

A corruption of "Voyager" which was integrated into a super duper advanced alien probe by an alien machine race.

Seems that some books are coming back and are available, but they are back to Agency pricing when I look, but that is off course from Sweden, maybe the view from USA is different.
