I just received an email from Amazon about an “unexpected delay” in delivery of a product

April 15th, 2013

And the product is a Kindle ebook! This is a new one for me.

The delivery date was pushed back from today till next Monday. Looks like WSJ couldn’t quite finish their book about Pope Francis in time.

Update: A friend writes:

That book, though written by the staff if the WSJ, is published by HarperCollins. And Harper Collins just so happens to be in the middle of a protracted antitrust dispute involving the concerted efforts of major publishers to delay the release of some of their ebooks, among other things.
