eBooks at Barnes & Noble = R.I.P.
In a short notice Barnes & Noble, once an aggressive competitor in the electronic market, announced that it no longer sells eBooks.
"We did not see sales take off as we and many others had anticipated," said Daniel Blackman, vice president and general manager of Barnes & Noble.com.
According to the Open eBook Forum, a trade organization, e-book sales totaled about $5 million in the first half of 2003, compared with $3.8 million in the first half of 2002.

Without looking at the notice, I think that stinks. Ebooks cost so little to produce and market, I find it hard to imagine why they can justify this attitude. Bah.

I received the following email from BN:
You buy a new device, hard reset your current device, do a full ROM upgrade or MS does another MS Reader upgrade that requires you to redownload your eBooks, which you have, ouups, purchased from BN.com. So much for DRM5 encrypted ebooks...
