  • Commented on "I doubt me an it be commercial."
    For the sake of clarity, if you buy a DRM-free ebook from Amazon, you can convert it to any other format using software called Calibre, including ePub. If a book isn't available drm-free, the resources are out there if you...

    294: "I don't consider the media I bought on iTunes to be really mine until I have the files stored outside the iTunes ecosystem, in a format that will allow me to view them outside the ecosystem." Personally, I rip...
  • Commented on "I doubt me an it be commercial."
    290: "Is that ebook available for purchase? The link on your site is to the Amazon "short term rental with DRM" edition, which I'm not interested in at any price." Uh, if you mean Kindle Unlimited, it's not part of...
