Amazon is already winning the war in e-book readers especially within a very new line of Kindle models at -- prices and now and -- -- -- kicked it up another notch. Amazon prime members can borrow digital books one book a month. For free. And there's no due date Amazon prime though it isn't free it's setting nine dollars year that its users free two day shipping on purchases and access to Amazon's free instant. Streaming video library. Now add to that access to more than 5000 free books to borrow with more than a hundred M New York Times best sellers. The new -- colors supposed to be announced on Monday so we'll have to see how Barnes & Noble compete. Yesterday we reported on a proposal in congress -- aiming to charge state sales tax to online retailers. The reason being to be and a -- into -- and Overstock.Com. Or Amazon.com doesn't charge state taxes. Amazon said they don't mind but -- fight hard against it. Now the law -- only impact businesses that make more than 500000 dollars in annual revenues so here's the catch for eBay sellers saying you're gonna pop shop with actual brick and mortar store that needs that revenue. Even be just a couple things on eBay still have to deal with handling sales taxes for multiple states and that's converting. In mobile news Apple admitted there is a battery life problem in devices running IOS five due to a software issue. And updates going to be push out over the next few weeks that addresses the complaints that the battery just -- too fast. Developers RD axis to update as yesterday. But while you iPhone users -- -- update check out innovative scanning app from Amazon call flow. Just released yesterday used the camera to identify an item and pops up a link to buy it. It also states thumbnail links to your scans if you're in a hurry. But that's about iphone's there's news for Blackberry users. A new music service -- -- today or tomorrow that's right resurgent nation is -- mile mark hit negating any music game. But the way it works might seem a little complicated. Messenger accounts pay five dollars a month to download fifty songs from the Blackberry catalog and will there are more than fifty songs in the catalog but you'll only get to pick fifty. The perk is that we have friends with the service you can access all of their fifty songs plaster around and expand your music collection that way. So sharing songs on a monthly music service and the Zune try that we'll be -- you better hope you have other Blackberry friends -- cool music tastes. Those are your headlines for today -- -- -- for cnet.com and you've just been loaded.
