e-Books

I really prefer physical books for most things but decided a couple of books I needed to purchase provided a good chance to give e-books another try. Since I buy most books from Amazon they were my first stop and it was nice to see they have reader apps for the iPhone and Mac (as well as a bunch of other platforms). I decided to check Apple’s iBook store and – rather shockingly – they don’t have a iBook reader app for the Mac (to say nothing of Windows etc). I guess this is one of those Steve-isms but certainly not one I can agree with. Generally speaking when I purchase something I’ll go with the technology that has the best chance of living a long time (in this case, more platforms means longer life and more versatility).

Needless to say I am now a Kindle customer.
