Comparing Amazon Prime grocery prices with supermarket prices?

I like buying things on Amazon prime, but only if they are roughly equal to or less than the cost of something that can be found in a supermarket. Is there some site that I can use to find a reasonable "supermarket price" (not the sale price) for things with brand names (like shaving cream or garbage bags) so that I can make sure I'm not paying well above the market price for something? I'd imagine prices vary by region, but I'm willing to take any suggestions. [more inside]

True Author Revenue Share on Amazon

I recently read a blog post / article written by a best-selling Amazon author who noted that after all of Amazon's small print, he was only getting about 20% revenue share on the sale of his work (comparable to the traditional publishing industry) rather than Amazon's frequently lauded 70%. Can anyone find the post / article in question?

Where can I buy the Practical Nomad eBook?

I'm looking to purchase The Practical Nomad as an e-book for my Kindle. It seems like it was previously available, but all the Amazon links are dead and I can't find any other e-book store where it can be purchased. I have a physical copy of the book already, but would like an e-book to travel with.

Multiple applications for similar Amazon openings?

Amazon insiders, and/or HR savants: I am applying for a position at Amazon, through their "Careers at Amazon" site. I notice that there are several positions listed, with different ID numbers, but essentially similar roles in the same metro area. Is it prudent, imprudent, or a non-issue to apply for all of those? Do they all go past the same sets of eyes?

What was this insect the burrowed into my hair?

Calling all Mefi Entomologists! On a trip in the Peruvian Amazon (Manu National Park), I broke a small log that was suspended over a shallow creek. Apparently, it held an insect nest, because ten seconds later everyone in our group was jumping around and batting at these tiny flying insects which buzzed straight into our hair and got tangled up. They didn't sting, but our guide described them as "haircutter bees" and said they would bite through strands of hair. They were smaller than honeybees and all black, I believe. Anyone have any idea what this insect was or a Latin name?

Help me figure out how to get my language learning videos on Amazon Prime and Netflix.

I have a subscription video language learning product - it's a popular iPhone app, and we have two languages- (Spanish and English) - about 30 hours total. We built it in-house and we would love to stream at least a few teaser episodes on Netflix and Amazon. But since we created it, we don't have a distributor who can reach out to Amazon or Netflix. Has anyone done this that could put me in touch with someone? The typical searches have yielded little and emailing support@agiantstreamingmediasite will probably not work...

Amazon is now automatically generating pull quotes from similar customer reviews: How are they doing that?

Amazon recently started featuring pull quotes on product reviews that are automatically compiled from 'similar' customer statements. For example, take a look at top of the reviews section for an iPad. At first I thought these might be manually maintained on popular products, but the pull quotes exist for some pretty obscure items with only a handful of reviews. They are obviously being procedurally compiled. I'm working on a project where this exact type of natural language processing could be very useful. Is there a preexisting library available that offers functionality similar to what Amazon is doing here? Or could anybody point me in the right direction for understand the technology behind this better?
