WSJ: Publishers Nurture Rivals to Kindle

From http://online.wsj.com/article/SB124139557124881817.html

Quote:
Some newspaper and magazine companies, feeling let down by the Kindle electronic reader from Amazon.com Inc., are pushing for alternatives.

A few publishers are forging alliances with consumer-electronics firms to support e-readers that meet their needs. Chief among their complaints about the Amazon portable reading gadget is the way Amazon acts as a middleman with subscribers and controls pricing. In addition, the layout isn't conducive to advertising.

I think amazon knows more about selling than these News firms do considering how bad news has become

though the layout about advertisments ive heard before and agree with.

I'm grateful the layout is not conducive to advertising.
