“Buy once, read everywhere”, I love this statement of Amazon Kindle.

I’ve used Sony Reader for a year. I chose it over Kindle because of its touch screen. Double-tap to look up words is a good feature.

Then I saw Kindler for PC, Kindle for MAC. I didn’t get Amazon’s idea until I installed Kindle for Android lately. Yes, that’s “buy once, read everywhere”. The most annoying thing of DRM is the binding to device. Digital is supposed to be read on multiple devices. What’s the point of binding to one?

Amazon knew this. It sees itself a platform, rather than a reader manufacturer. Sony is still a manufacturer. If it wants to get its slice in the ebook market share, do something. Ditch the stupid DRM.
