Amazon Ebooks Deal Cancelled

I'm feeling better now.
Panzer got behind in reporting the news last week because he wasn't feeling well, but today our big bad kitty boy is feeling much better. At the New York Daily News site he found a news item from last week that looks interesting.

According to a post by Lisa Colangelo and Ben Chapman, a $30 million contract between Amazon and the New York City Education Department has been postponed. The contract was to be to setup an ebook marketplace for the city's students. The contract was postponed because the Department received letters protesting that visually impaired students would have problems using the system. Amazon and the Department are in talks to alleviate the problem.

Panzer says, "Hmmm ... $30 million ebook store for students."
