eBook Formats: PDF, TXT, Any printable document(after converted to PDF using included software)
I have one primary question: Why are you bringing this piece of shit to market?
PDF and TXT?
Are you all out of your fucking minds?
Why are you going to add to the existing confusion about eBook file formats by releasing something that can read none of them?
What greed-infected jackass at your company thought this shit was a good idea?
What, you got wind that “eBooks are the New New Thing” and decided to pickpocket a few pennies from suckers wandering down that garden path?
Do you really think there aren’t people out here in Blogland who can’t see this shit for what it is — and won’t call it the shit that it is?
Well, surprise! This is your lucky day. You’ve just run into the one person in Blogland who will call it the shit that it is!
This is an embarrassment.
No, really. It is. You look like a pack of doofuses.
Call it a mistake. Claim you all had a collective aneurysm and this somehow got loose onto the Internets because someone hit Send instead of dialing 911 for an ambulance.
Just get rid of it.
It’s not good for one fucking thing, no matter what the price.
And that slugline? “Save money to buy more e-books”? — to what? Read on a Sony Reader? Your piece of shit can’t read eBooks!
Here’s a more honest slugline: “Save your money for a Sony Reader.”
