That was quick!

So yesterday I'm searching on Connect for Alan Greenspan's The Age of Turbulence(:ect.) And it wasn't there. So I use the feedback form on the website to make the request, and added that I was surprised that it hadn't been released to an eBook on publication.

Tonight, I'm surfing along and I plug "Alan Greenspan" into the Connect site again. Why? I suppose I'm masochistic and like to see "Not found" again and again...

But, lo and behold, there it was in all it's glory! So I pick it up, of course.

The downside: $28.00 from a list of $35.00. (Because Amazon's list is $20.99 with free shipping.)
The upside: Mobipocket lists it right now at the full $35.00 list.
No other e-sellers currently seem to have it.

OK, off to read about adventures in the Fed.

I just looked and you are right, no other ebook shops yet have it besides the overly priced MobiPocket and Connect.

I had a similar thing happen to me. Sony has not been keeping their "New Releases" list up to date since July 31st on connect or the connect website. I emailed them to let them know. Today when they sent out the new releases email I checked the link and they have updated the list.

I don't really think these incidents are just coincidences as I have emailed them several times and they seem to take care of things pretty quickly.

The moral of the story is if you see an issue with connect email Sony and let them know. There is a pretty good chance that they are listening and will fix whatever issues are reported.

You can message them again that the Amazon price is $21 and they might lower it to match, or at least get closer. They have done that in the past on a couple of books I've messaged them on.
