Contents to have infinite supply

Google Print is digitaling books online. Media, and all human-made origina contents as a matter of fact, will never run out of print again. Online giant Yahoo and Microsoft are following suit. This is certain one big step forward towards the wholy-grail of internet, distributed content publication and distribution.
We are still not quite there yet. As I search for Hemingway's Old Man and the Sea , only the first few pages show up. As I search more, more sporadical pages show up, which arrogantly requests logging in with a Google account for viewing more pages. The most annoying thing is, none of the enlisted online bookstores actually carry this book! I cannot get a copy even if I want to pay for it! What a loss of business opportunities! This will never happen again in the future. Infinite supply, just like software!
