TXTREVIEWS: Amazon.com Policy Change Impacts Canadian Startup

Amazon has unexpectedly changed their policy and has banned mobile companies from accessing their data

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 17, 2007) -

Attention Technology Editors

TXTREVIEWS has been banned from using Amazon's data through its E-Commerce Service (ECS), along with a slew of other mobile companies.

Amazon's data was a core piece in the business model for TXTREVIEWS. They are now actively looking for alternative data sources however, finding a replacement to Amazon's terabytes of data is not an easy task.

"Although this development is obviously a big disappointment for us, we are searching for alternative data sources and appreciate your patience in the mean time. We will continue to work hard to provide our users with the information they need, on demand, to help them make an educated decision." said Hussein Fazal, Founder & CEO.
