from the connect main page:
The Kite Runner
Kahled Hosseini
Connect Price: $11.20
Amazon MMP: $7.87

This seems really silly. I'm sure that sony (or we) could put together a script that would go through every book on connect, then look it up on amazon, and compare.

I think these are ok, a couple of dollar difference is understandable. And don't point out the ones they have cheaper, come on!

Sony could implement a new policy:

If you can find a paper edition at any book retailer located in the United States for less than our price for the same title as an ebook edition we'll refund you the difference plus 10%.

I just wanted to add a note or comment about the Connect Store version of Freakenomics. This is NOT the new expanded edition - it turns out they're charging full price for the old edition.

Same here, I just logged on to the Store to buy it, but NOT at that price. I will be back from time to time to see if it's back and proper.

I noticed Ilium by Dan Simmons went up to $15.96, I definitely didn't buy it at that price a couple of weeks ago. In fact I've been waiting for the sequel, Olympos, to come down from that price since it is in paperback. This is a step backwards!
