Google eBooks: Is That All There Is?

Google eBooks: Is That All There Is?:
"Two weeks ago the Google eBookstore finally launched, and the world was briefly amazed. Google Editions, as it was known until launch, was the book world’s Duke Nukem Forever: vaporware for seven years, depending on how you count. Its actual emergence was like the birth of a unicorn. A mewling, misshapen, half-baked unicorn."
Sounds like the typical corporate malaise: more time spent in the boardroom working on mission statements and marketing plans than actually building and populating the store.
