Agree.... Until there is a way to strip DRM and make the content "future proof" count me out. I buy books (for example) from Kobo, simple because I can rid them of DRM easy. I will not buy an iBooks book until I can strip the DRM. (I Will take the free ones though) and on that subject......

I have had iPods since 2004, and iPhone for almost 2 years..... And yesterday i got the first thing ever from iTunes.... A free book....

The only things at this point I buy from apple are the devices, and apps......
