Downloading Books – Why Can’t We?

  |   General   |   No comment

So maybe this is the former Adobe employee coming out in me, but I’m really quite ticked that we can’t download books. I mean really, all books now days are written on word processors and put through countless edits and re-dos on electronic machines. It’s not like anyone uses a typewriter anymore. I know all the concerns about copyright, DRM, etc. etc. blah blah blah . . . but I have a very rapid personality. When I want something, I want it now. So while I’m searching Amazon, there are a number of books I want to buy . . . but I’d really like to download them first and see if I REALLY want them. It could even be a Read-Only deal, no printing. Then credit me the amount of the download purchase toward the real book if I decide to buy. How cool would that be. Their “Search inside” feature is cool, but really for the few pages I get to read, it just doesn’t do it for me. And don’t even get me started on the Kindle and other electronic readers . . . ick. Just what I need another gadget when my laptop will do just fine. I mean we can already download movies legally on iTunes, so why not books? Steve Jobs, are you listening? You may finally get me to buy an iPod Touch!
