    Weird PDF doc for sale on Amazon.com

    It's a PDF. It's 5 pages long. It's $3500:

    Amazon.com: Microsoft Takes the Lead on Multicore Licensing: IDC, Al Gillen, Dan Kusnetzky, Vernon Turner: Books

    I don't know about you, but I think that's a real deal.
    Code:
    //try
    //{
    	if (a) do { f( b); } while(1);
    	else   do { f(!b); } while(1);
    //}

    Presumably the PDF is licensed.......
    Right 98% of the time, and don't care about the other 3%.

    Yes, but $3500 for five pages? On the topic of Microsoft's multicore licensing strategies in 2005? I'm having trouble imagining what could possibly be contained in those five pages on that topic to be worth that much money.

    I'm familiar with analyst reports, my company has purchased them in the past... This one seems kind of silly though.
    Code:
    //try
    //{
    	if (a) do { f( b); } while(1);
    	else   do { f(!b); } while(1);
    //}

    $3500 for five pages would be worth it if it's 5 pages of lottery results for the next month... depreciates very quickly, though.

    It is not weird for IDC it seems.
