exactly. this would actually support the argument that amazon's lower prices would not affect these local bookstores that sell "hard to find" books. of course, that's not what the french government is trying to do. they're trying to protect all french bookstores at the expense of the average french consumer.

Submission + - Sunrocket (VOIP) Shuts Down, Users Lose Service

elysian1 writes: Sunrocket, a VOIP provider, has suddenly closed up shop leaving its employees and customers without phone service. From one of Sunrocket's former employees posted on sunrocketforum.com, "...we were walked out of the call center today. we had NO warning and even when discussing the rumors we had seen on the web this morning we were told everything was fine and our jobs were safe..." Also, the NY Times has apparently picked up on this story here. It's a shame too, because I, like many of its other customers, have just recently signed up and paid for two years of service.
