“…only by eliminating DRM and making e-books cross platform compatible will the e-book really benefit from the Oprah push. An Amazon with monopolistic control over e-books will be bad for the industry and bad for the readers.” – Dear Author.
“I guess we’ll soon find out whether Winfrey is the Kindle’s golden goose.
