I hear that several times but fail to understand what I as a reader gets from ePub.
You get the pleasure of knowing you are not buying any eBooks from Apple.
Sorry I should have been more clear. I do not know what I gain as a customer if Amazon supported ePub. I already can read all my Amazon books on any device I want.
And yes, I agree about not buying books from Apple.
If Amazon adds ePub using ADE, you gain the ability to buy eBooks (with DRM) from other sources besides Amazon. You gain a better format that's more advanced then Mobipocket. You gain compatibility with the #1 eBook format in the world. You gain two giant steps forward instead of 3 giant steps back.
