And it works with Firefox.

The searching is more developed than I remember it being. Excellent!

Sometimes Sony amazes me, first they don't mind users hacking their reader, then they allow Firefox. I'm afraid to think what happens next

It might be interesting to compare some book prices with Fictionwise, eReader, mobiPocket, Amazon, etc.

But remember that Sony doesn't determine the prices, the publishers do.

Not really, heh. Needs some more to be officially dubbed iTunes for e-books.

True. Someone did a price comparison before when the store was still under development. I think only time will tell how much influence Sony has over publishers. It's a chicken and egg scenario.

If Sony Connect becomes as successful as iTunes, I think we'll all be dancing in the streets because e-book readers will be everywhere!

How do you download the Connect Reader software? I've looked all over their website and cannot find the software for the life of me....I see prices listed, but no options to buy, and no links whatsoever to software. Does it just come with the reader? This makes no sense, as I could imagine some people want to actually purchase some titles before they recieve their reader....

Yup, the Connect Software only only comes with the Reader, as far as I know. There's not much point in buying books 'til you have a Reader, as they need to be encoded for the device after it's registered to the account. Besides, the whole point of the Reader is to not read on the computer monitor.
