Dingleberry pie at this point, IMHO! Let's hope they are not talking about cloud computing. Cloud computing is the biggest dingleberry of them all.

But I wonder if the "paid" books will be like that? If so, there will be some disappointed consumers, I think.
That's one of my concerns with this, also. Every Google book I've downloaded has been loaded with errors (I once got one that had about three straight pages of symbols - (@*$#{?>: and so on - instead of content) and while that doesn't bother me in a free product, if I paid for it and it still had those kinds of errors, I'd be really annoyed.
