This commitment from Apress moves us closer to our vision for Kindle, which is to make any book, ever printed, in any language available wirelessly in less than 60 seconds.

Maybe I haven’t been paying attention. Or maybe my visceral-aesthetic revulsion of the Kindle (mis)design has blinded me.

And you, Sony?
“Our vision for the Sony Reader is …”
… a device open to more eBooks than any other?
… a device that can be used with public libraries?
… a device that gets its ass kicked by superior Kindle marketing?!
So far, it’s been the last one!
“Our vision for the Sony Reader is to be the most affordable, most open, and most …”
I leave others up to you. That’s why you people get your paychecks.
Now get to work!
