So, if you change devices, you lost all your purchased titles? Worse than DRM.
It also looks fairly primitive, like something done in Flash over a decade ago, albeit with touch capabilities.
Agreed. But I just can't bring myself to believe they wouldn't make a version that would work both on theiPad and on a mouse driven computer... That would mean marketing suicide, how many of those ebooks would they sell anyway if they made it only on the iPad?
