Diesel eBooks DRM simulator - "try before you buy"
Diesel eBooks, one of the newer and most promising e-book stores, has a new feature which allows e-book newbies to download encrypted "test" e-books (available in Adobe Reader, Microsoft Reader and eReader format) before making a purchase. Excerpt from the press release:
L. Scott Redford, President of Diesel eBooks http://www.diesel-ebooks.com, states, "Downloading an encrypted ebook for the first time can be intimidating. While this fear has been a barrier to some in expanding their reading collection to ebooks, our hope is this free tool will take the fear out of the equation and create confidence in a smooth transaction."
Alexander Turcic, editor of the popular online community Mobileread http://www.mobileread.com, welcomes the new feature by Diesel eBooks: "In a perfect world, publishers would choose to distribute their best-sellers without DRM protection, and all customers would behave themselves and never pirate copyright-protected material. As long as we haven't reached this state yet, Diesel eBooks DRM simulator is a fast and effective alternative helping newbies to learn more about the advantageous use of digital books."
Scott is an active Mobileread visitor who listens closely to the comments and wishes of our other members.
