I don't have a PC. My access to a PC is inconvenient (at best). Fortunately, I don't really care about the connect store as long as they insist on DRM-ridden content (and over-priced, to add insult to injury). My interest would pick up (some) if they dumped the DRM.
I'm happily using my prs500 with my Macs and Libprs500. Remind me why it would be silly to buy a Sony Reader without having a Windows machine?
P.S. I spend hundreds of dollars on eBooks each year. I think I'm the kind of customer Sony would be interested in capturing and satisfying. So why do they insist on ignoring my platform of choice? Even though it's now back up above 10% (of home machines) in the US market? Oh, right. Windows is the "standard"...
