Living With My Fear of Amazon, Destroyer of Worlds
I buy a lot of stuff from Amazon. Chances are you do, too.
I used to feel pretty good about the e-tailer. Now, increasingly, I feel a little dirty every time I patronize it.
For one thing, its nearly yearlong price-setting war with Hachette -- which quietly wrapped up in December with Amazon more or less folding and allowing the book publisher to determine its own e-book prices -- still leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
