And As long as I Physically have it, I can still use it. Even if the company that made it goes out of business, i'm not going to lose the ability to use it.

For me ebooks are the equivalent of my DVD / Tapes (many of which I still watch after 20 years) and I still want to be able to access them in the future.
Well, then the solution is to save backup copies of your books burn them to CD/DVD's periodically. Unless your device completely locks you of access to the files themselves you can do this...now, if the company goes tits up and the reader croaks that is a whole other can-o-worms...then again that is why we have kovid and "others" around, to solve such scenarios for us illiteratti...
