There are rumors that this Barnes and Nobles will be opening a bookstore for the upcoming Apple table. It looks to compete in the marketplace with Amazon.

Worth a consideration. Hype is always good if you play it right going into tomorrow's announcement of the Apple tablet.

can you explain that further please.

does short interest drive the price up? is that why you say its hard to short? or that it is hard to get actual shares to short?

Lots of eyes on this right now as it has been showing signs of a possible impending squeeze, over 50% float short, about THIRTY days to cover.
