Commerce, Research, Ego

Amazon's new Search Inside feature—which allows you to full-text search some 33 million pages from 120,000 books in the Amazon catalog (and, "We plan to widely expand our Search Inside the Book offering and continue to make more books available to you")—struck me first as a super way to shop for books. Then it hit me what a nifty, free research tool this potentially is (see the Search Inside results included in searches for "trespass to chattels;" "work for hire;" "internet jurisdiction; "DMCA;" "digital rights management."). Finally, of course, there were the samoyeds (not me, though we had one when I was little).
