The Zero-Gravity Toilet Of Adobe DRMed ePub | The Digital Reader

The Zero-Gravity Toilet Of Adobe DRMed ePub | The Digital Reader | book publishing | Scoop.it
Editor's Note: Mike Cane originally wrote this post way back in 2008. I am reposting it in 2016 because even though eight years have passed, the problem still exists. Earlier today Mike Cane pointed me at this tweet by a Dutch Kobo Aura One owner. His library has its own ebook servers which use Adobe DRM, and the instructions actually listed 18 steps required to load an ebook on to a Kobo. So yes, we still have the same DRM stupidity which was hassling users eight years ago. (Coincidentally, this is still the reason why Amazon went with their own DRM and ebook format. It was a good idea then, and still is today.)  O O O There’s a classic shot in the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey when the main character has to first consult instructions on how to use a zero-gravity toilet:   Imagine having to go through all that! And yet — there is something actually worse than that. It’s the instructions on how to go about using Adobe DRMed ePub eBooks! Here are the Zero-Gravity toilet instructions: Now contrast the amount of text there to instructions for using Adobe DRMed ePub: Can you imagine the poor technically [...]
