    I’m all in favor of authors making a decent living from their work, but sorry to say I find the pricing of Kindle editions obscenely high. Plus there’s the added insult that one has to buy dedicated hardware that may go the way of the Newton or 8-track in a few years. High prices for some low-volume physical books may have some rationale because of fixed costs of production. To peg Kindle edition prices so closely to the prices of the physical books seems like pretty naked rent-seking. I’d rather see authors push for a non-proprietary (or broadly-available, like .pdf) electronic format at much lower prices. Then your volume effects might start to kick in.

    my big question is this… how is this better than just making it downloadable into a regular computer?

    I mean there is some marginal benefit, i assume, but its like $300, and that is hard to justify.
