I am always a little amused when I see that line or the "printed on acid-free paper" note in an ebook.

What is truly needed to declare an ebook format mature? Some publishers and some titles try to add video and audio to ebooks; does that make such ebooks more "evolved"?

I have a couple of these video hybrids. While the video features can be interesting, they don't always add much value even as they add file size. One of my video ebooks takes up close to half a gigabyte!

As said earlier, many ebook shortcomings come from shoddy production and not from the format itself.
