The New Dead Horse Thread (Link Round-up!)

Beat them here.

1. Here is a link to an article that is completely fact-free, but has interesting fantasies about pricing, loss-leaders, the 'winner' of the e-ink/tablet market, and/or the future of ebooks. DISCUSS THESE FANTASTICAL IDEAS AS THOUGH PROVEN FACT.

2. Here is a link to an article that discusses copyrights and the breaking of them in the most polarizing terms possible, and which pretends that you aren't already totally entrenched in your existing opinion. DISCUSS YOUR OPINIONS WITH INCREASINGLY IRRELEVANT HYPOTHETICAL ANALOGIES.

3. Here is a link to a breaking news story about a new technology that will totally revolutionize everything and will make all your previous purchases sad mistakes of a bygone past and which you are expected to covet immediately even though the actual technology is an untested beta that exists in a lab somewhere and the article on said beta was written by someone who heard about the technology second-hand. DISCUSS HOW SOON THE MYTHICAL TECHNOLOGY WILL BE AVAILABLE BASED ON HOW BADLY YOU WANT TO OWN IT.

Did I miss anything?

(Hi, MobileReaders! Missed you all during the Thanksgiving holidays. )

How can a discussion on copyright be irrelevant when the idea of copyright still exists in minds such as yours?

1) The "evil company" out to destroy us all and take away our rights versus "the good company" out to

Pick your steel cage match ups: Apple vs Amazon, Amazon vs B&N/Kobo or Smashwords and all the non-DRM vendors, Google vs Microsoft, Apple vs the World, the Big 6 vs Amazon...I'm still holding out hope that Smashwords will

2) How Epub is "open" (despite non-standard DRM) and Amazon's system is closed (despite many books being published DRM-free and that you can get .mobi/.prc format books from a multitude of other sites besides Amazon).

This is a subset of the "format wars" flamewar...Epub vs Mobi, no disqualification, no countouts...with PDF, HTML, RTF and a gaggle more standing on the sidelines flailing about saying, "Oh, I'm an ebook format, too!"

3) "Self-pubbed authors aren't real authors" (oh yes we are, too, nah-nah) vs "published authors/publishing establishment", also the flamewars on traditionally published authors bailing for self-publishing and "what it all means."

okay, okay. Whatever you say pal.
I'm sure I'd agree with you if I knew what you were talking about

God, I can't help but see some pro-wrestling promo with the no DQ's and countouts.

"Well ya know somethin', Mean Gene? All I do is listen to what the Amazon Warrior says and how he's gonna take the strap and be the best, brother. But, I've been sayin' my prayers, takin' my vitamins, and done my formatting. Al my ePubmaniacs out there are pumpin' up these 24-inch pythons for Format Brawl Friday, Brother. Whatcha gonna do, brother, when ePubamania runs wild on you!?!?"

Haha! It's so nice to wander away from MR for a bit and always know that some things will never change. **sigh**
