If there was a standard, you might not see companies deciding to completely drop support. This is also one reason you will never find my buying an ebook device put out by Amazon.
I keep pointing out that Amazon has screwed people over with eBook in the past. Nobody seems to LISTEN. Mainly it's Abobe PDF eBooks that are the biggest issue. People upgrade their computer or install a new version of the OS and they need to download the eBook in order to read it but cannot because Amazon decided to only allow downloads for a year and didn't tell anyone up front. So why are people TRUSTING Amzon again with eBooks when Amazon has never made amends in the first place with all the people they've screwed over?
