Here’s a quotation from Engadget through BBC News, with all the important parts bolded:
“Microsoft, its new pet dog Yahoo, and Amazon have decided to join together in the soon to be formed Open Book Alliance. You might expect this to be a revolutionary new collaborative effort at delivering the written word in a way that makes Google Books pale into insignificance, but you would, of course, be wrong. Far from trying to compete with Google, The OBA is set to act as the collective mouthpiece for all those opposed to Google’s recent $125 million settlement deal with book publishers and authors. With the US Department of Justice already investigating antitrust concerns relating to the case, the other big dogs just couldn’t restrain themselves from pitching in together for a united whinge. Should the settlement be cleared, it will permit Google non-exclusive rights to orphan works (those without an established writer) and will give it a 30 per cent cut of books sold via Google Books, both things that authors have agreed to. So what’s there to moan about, fellas — we all trust Google to do the right thing, right?”
They excerpt says that they’re not competing with Google, but come on! Anyways, worse comes to worst, I believe Google has the complete support of Apple.

A few days ago, it hit me like a big yellow school bus, that this blog is MINE. I was keeping it for music/movies/tv strictly (well, almost), but there’s nothing that tells me that it’s all I should write about it. It’s my space, my place, I can write about anything I want, so therefor, forget the mostly-music orientation of the blog, and be ready to see much more. Of course music will still be dominant, because it is my passion after all, but there’s going to be more other exciting beginnings, and no endings to any of the posts you’re used to, and love.
For the heck of it:

J.K. Rowling never ceases to amaze me by her ever-growing imaginative writing skills. In each Harry Potter book she wrote, she comes up with something new to make you think, and this book is no different, it’s a collection of 5 short stories, in the vein of children fairytales such as Beauty and The Beast, Cinderella, The Sleeping Beauty, Snow White..etc. as she describes the book in the introduction. All of the five story have a story and a lesson to learn from, I won’t go too deep into the book, but what I will say is, this is a must-have for everyone who loved, or didn’t love the Potter series.
