  1. What the hell makes Norway so unattractive to launch online services? All neighbouring countries get it before us. Even though we have the strongest economy.

  2. What’s interesting to add to this news, is that Google has started a price war in The Netherlands. All e-books they offer are 68% of the suggested retail price. This is the first time any retailer over here sets its prices below the suggested retail price. This was instantly followed by bol.com, which is still the largest e-book retailer in The Netherlands. Other retailers, such as Kobo, Apple and Dutch companies like Polare and Bruna maintain the suggested prices for the moment.
