f682aff184 Using a word processor and a spreadsheet application was not a common skill ten years ago, but is unthinkable for anybody wanting a job involving a computer. In effect, making HTML5 into portable documents. But the idea to register here, to write an app for this and that just sucks. I'm ignoring the 2-abreast pages on ADE since I assume most people won't be using it. Why should I pay double the money for a book as an American reader? Or how to get the books from the German store? Or Chinese books? Okay, in the case of DVD recorders the Chinese importer did it for me. I haven't absorbed most of it, yet.Bill B. franksanello says: July 5, 2012 at 7:29 am Oh, no! Just as I was beginning to accept the death of the printed book publishing industry, I now learn that ebooks will also go the same way! As an author, I find this new blow infinitely sad.
A PDF with book-sized pages is virtually indistinguishable from a real e-book on the iPad, and I presume that reading the same book on different devices simultaneously is a fairly uncommon usecase. A year from now with tools from dozens of vendors supporting EPUB 3 and building-block open source components for things like Media Overlays available, I think it will be clearly faster and better for an FT.com to use EPUB 3 as an element of their solution. Carriers must become just an internet providers. Laurent says: May 5, 2012 at 11:35 pm Youre obviously reading magazines or books with big pictures where the layout is the most important criteria so on a big screen pdf is ok. PDF was created to allow something to look identical on any desktop computer screen a very long time ago, when desktop computers were the only reasonable computing device. I never knew the notes were accessible online. Definitely not pdfs. Maybe I have a workaround for a Amazon (or an iPad or whatever) as well. Epub does not mean drm, reader does not mean apple and you can get ebooks from a lot of sources outside that place enclosed by Apple.
