S: Columbia, which puts out Bruce Springsteen's albums.

Our last word in business today is Springsteenian. It's the term Amazon is throwing around a lot this week as it launches an online store exclusively for Bruce Springsteen.

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "RADIO NOWHERE")

: This site will premiere his new music videos, like this one, and sell his albums. Obviously good for Amazon and for Columbia. Whether it's good for Bruce Springsteen, well, he may be the boss of his own store, but now he has one more boss.
