    It looks like Ingram is trying to take on Amazon with a new platform called Aerio. I have not heard very much about this. Does anyone use it?

    I've never heard of Aerio. They've certainly got their work cut out for them if they want to take on Amazon. I've only skimmed through the site but it looks like it has some promising features. I wonder if the fact that they don't have an app like Kindle will end up hurting them though. People are lazy (myself included) and being able to download it directly via an app is just easier.

    I wonder how much of this will be an American only operation as Ingram is not generally known in the UK.

    It sounds like they have distribution centers in America, the UK, and Australia. They also say they have suppliers worldwide. I'm not sure how extensive it is though. I found the information here.
