Updating content - question for our host

Ken, you narrated the Because I Said So audiobook, right? Did Tantor come back to get you to read the new-for-paperback chapter of viewer mail?

I've been wondering about updates like this since 2006. Like a chump, I bought the hardcover of Freakonomics when it came out in 2005. When the revised and expanded edition and the paperback came out, I felt like I had not just paid for a beta version but paid extra for a flawed beta. I literally haven't bought a new release since then unless it's a Kindle edition.

Hmm. Apparently, I've been trusting that Mr. Bezos will comp me the new/corrected stuff when the paperback comes out. Now that I think about it, I'm not sure why I'm sure. Since it would be essentially free to push the correction, it seems like it makes sense for eBooks to update automagically.
