    That is good to know. I bought a couple weeks ago the ebook for Beginning iPhone game Development from apress for almost $30. Computer books get out dated so fast these days they just end up wasting space on my shelfs. I only get ebooks anymore when it comes to computers.

    What we need is an app for that. That can push notify when these deals come out. I vote for balamw to create this free app :)

    I vote for an RSS feed. Then any RSS reader would work. Even ones not on iOS. For those days when you take your MacBook Air out for some sightseeing.
