Microsoft has a DRM-locked ebook store that isn't making enough money, so they're shutting it down and taking away every book that every one of its customers acquired effective July 1.

As a result most small businesses struggle to connect with their customers because no one picks up their phone. You call people and they don’t pick up. You leave...
