Is there a site that searches all the flat-rate streaming sites (Netflix, Hulu, and now Amazon prime) for a particular movie/tv show? Or, better, that's like Instant Watcher
for more than Netflix? I realize I can search all the sites separately.

Is the "All Clad Stainless Steel 4-Quart Brown and Braise Pan
" ($120 at Amazon) the same as the "All-Clad Stainless-Steel 4-Quart Saute Pan
" ($225), just with a different lid? One reviewer says it's exactly the same, but the other reviewer says it has the diameter of their "3-quart saute pan
" ($200), and is deeper. Who's right? And why is it so much less expensive than either of the sauté pans? Is it the accent aigu
? I like the domed lid and the low price, but mostly want the large evenly-heating expanse of bare metal you get from All Clad. My turn-ons include braising turkey thighs and long walks on the beach.

Amazon --my sister self-published a book. She has an interest in selling it on amazon. Neither of us is interested in the pro-level of $40/month. Is there an option I'm overlooking? Alternatively can we do the $40 one month, get the book in and then drop back to the 99c/sale level?

I'm about to buy a Panasonic TC-P42U2 plasma flat-panel TV (Amazon

Why are Amazon/PayPal trying to kill off wikileaks? I figured it was to score brownie points with the govt but surely there's a more logical explanation. Is Amazon afraid of DDOS's? Is PayPal afraid of fraud? Enlighten me hive mind.

If I sell off some of my books on Amazon, is that income I need to pay taxes on? I ask because I'll generally be selling my books at a loss - they're books I bought for myself, am done reading and want out of my spare bedroom. It's not exactly the product of a business plan.

LibraryThing, Shelfari, Goodreads, BookJetty, Amazon, even Facebook....am I missing any? I'm just beginning to dip my toes into book reviewing, and exploring the features of these various sites to see which might work best for me.
What I'd like to know is, is there a web service (a la Twitterfeed or somesuch) that allows one to post a book review to all of these places at once? Because that would be handy.

Got a $5 credit from Amazon.com's mp3 department. What are some l-o-n-g cuts (or albums comprised of lengthy tunes) that will give me some serious bang for my buck? I'm particularly partial to lengthy ambient/drone classics like Terry Riley's In C
, Manuel Göttsching's E2-E4
, Brian Eno's Music for Airports
and other extended outings.

I'm sure most of you remember last year's Kindle debacle, when Amazon deleted copies of 1984 from users' machines
. Now I've heard that Amazon can also track the highlight function, and stores the information of how
users read. Is this true? Are there other Kindle-spylike things that Amazon can do/is doing?

How can I get Amazon to give me mp3 files for single songs and amz files for albums only? Alternatively, how can I get it to go back to only giving me mp3 files (and not download albums at all)? The FAQ doesn't seem to cover it or I can't find it at least and I'm hesitant to experiment at a dollar a pop.
