From what I read, in the UK Amazon's price-slashing tactics are powered by tax-evasion. Is it the same in the USA? And does B&N pay tax?

A quick google suggests that B&N do not evade tax like Amazon. For shame.
Tax-avoiding, not tax-evading.
One is legal (and sensible), the other is not.

NPR is a very pro-corporate outlet.

On the nook side of things, video for movies and tv is available for rental. Not sure without offering hulu, netflix, amazon monthly type plan how nook video would be able to compete.

Does it work now? When I tried it while doing my review for the HD+ I tried to buy a video and it wouldn't work. I do see that all of my UltraViolet movies now show up in my library on the HD+, although many are marked as unavailable.

I'm not entirely sure about nook video as I just play with the demos on display at the stores. I see you can buy or rent but I never tried to do it.

For UV, I just downloaded the flixster app to one of the demos and logged in and saw my movies. They all played but I only have 5.

I thought it depended on the movie and how you redeem it. I thought sure all mine showed HDX when I redeemed them.

I did not know the Flixster app limited resolution playback. And vudu is not available for mobile playback last time I checked with them. I did not try what the uv interface for the nook is on the device. My workaround day one in the store was to use flixster. Even the store rep was surprised that worked as she was hung up with the nook interface which was not working yet.

Vudu has an Android app now (just came out), but it only allows SD (480p) too.

So maybe only the nook interface is the way to get hd uv playback I guess. And I have to check if the nook video is up and running as well.
