The latter look a lot better, we think, and we should have done it sooner but had a few technical dilemmas about how exactly to implement it. The former type will still work (to take account of all the links to our site that are already out there) but using those will automatically redirect you to the new type. The “Share” buttons have also been updated to copy the new link for you.
We decided to use the “slug” item rather than upc in preparation for introducing EANs and ISBNs in the future. But those plans we’ll talk about another time.
