AMAZON

SEARCH AMAZON AND THE WEB SIMULTANEOUSLY

The Annoyance:

It drives me crazy when, after I buy a book from Amazon, I find the information I needed on the Web. Why can't I search the Web and Amazon simultaneously, so I can decide whether it's worth buying the book in the first place?

The Fix:

You can, and Amazon makes it possible, thanks to its oddly named A9 search site at http://www.a9.com. At first, it seems like any other search site—type in your search term, and you get web results. But click the Books button on the right, and you'll see a list of books on Amazon that match your search results as well (see Figure 8-17). Click a listing, and you're jetted over to the appropriate Amazon book page.
