If I were reading the latest book, or had to purchase them and deal with activation the way you have, I'm sure I'd feel the same. My point is more about the "visual" and "readability" aspects. Those thing that Bill was talking. The only real refrence he made
to IP issues I totally agree with, no one originator of content should be paid only once. To which the larger question of course is how?
I have no idea. What I do know is that whatever content I get in the MS Reader format is easy on my increasingly antiquated eye-balls.
I'd just like to thank Bill and the typography team. I've been using Reader first on an Axiom (similar to one he briefly showed off back in the walk around the campus video) and then later I upgraded to the same HTC phone / PDA that he briefly showed off
in the video here.
The ability to have MS Reader and all the associated readability elements is probably the only thing that has allowed me to actually keep reading anything other than, well TechNet basically.
I never knew how, but something about reading books on Reader has always just been as natural as reading an actual book. It’s absolutely fascinating to hear about all the research that went in to achieving that experience.
