Post Article in WSJ today

Not sure if this is the right place for this but I thought this was an interesting article in the Wall St. Journal today.

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000...Tabs%3Darticle

Sorry I posted this. I am informed that it was posted here last evening. Guess they receive the WSJ earlier than we do and I did not see the post.

Its a nice summary of where things stand.
Thanks for the tip.
One think I noticed; they refer to "125 million iTunes customers" as the reason the BPHs got in bed with Apple and bit on the "Agency Model" price-fixing scheme.

If that is accurate, somebody is in for a rude shock.

It does accurately highlight why brick and mortar stores are more likely an anchor on B&N and Borders than an asset to their book sales.

So sorry. I didn't see it. We just got the WSJ this morning and it was in today's edition. I guess the person who posted it last night lives in New York and saw it before we received ours.
