Afternoon Shift

The 3@3: e-book wars, gas price behaviors and the impact of the George Zimmerman arrest

Previous Next

Today on the 3@3, we take on the stories of the day with Columbia College Professor Curtis Lawrence and Changing Gears' Naila Boodhoo. Steve Edwards hosts.

The topics:

Curtis Lawrence: Last night, George Zimmerman was charged with second degree murder for the killing of Trayvon Martin. What does that mean? Is the justice system working or is this just bowing to societal pressure?

Niala Boodhoo: Gas prices are inching higher and higher, but will Americans change their habits? Probably not. What will it take?

Steve Edwards: Government alleges that Apple (and 5 other publishers) conspired to raise prices on e-book buyers. Amazon jumped in the fray to lower costs. How does this affect e-publishing going forward and the price we will all pay for books?
