So what value does the service have? For such a service I would be willing to pay.... $0.

When
1. We have WiFi (or whatever the incarnation is at that time) everywhere.
2. We have fuel cells for our tablet PCs (running a secure OS, of course) that last for weeks before needing to be refueled.
Then this Google "service" will have some value.

Jees. O'Reilly has an eBook service that works and makes them money. Why can't companies just emulate that?
