I opend calibre and then opened ny Stanza app and copied 6 epubs over yesterday was very simple and involved no use of web servers etc I can also get my books directly from kindle store, BoB, feedbooks manybooks etc all with a couple of clicks.

in fact its easier on my iPhone than on My sony! I have to actually connect my sony to my Machine to do the same thing.
