Compatibility of iPad Books
One of the discussion topics that came up was how compatible would a book you bought for the iPad be with say, a Kindle? We couldn't quickly find an answer to this but I stumbled on this article by Steven Sanders on TUAW this weekend that answered a lot of our questions. It's worth a read if you are interested.
My wife and I were talking about the iPad over dinner. We both own iPods and own a lot of music. We were never drawn to any of the music subscription schemes out there and always wanted to own what we bought. I listen to songs over and over and over. Not true for most books though. I would willingly join a service that let me keep a book, read it and then go onto the next one. For a monthly fee, I could read as many or as few books as I wanted. Be curious to see where this technology ends up.
