If you need a laugh...
I came across an article about how Adobe DE1.5 will fix many of the design features in 1.0. There is this one part that made me laugh at loud at the absurdity. Don't try to drink anything while you read it.

Same old attitude. "We have your money. We don't care any more."
As for me, I sure as hell won't depend on Adobe or anyone else to "backup" my ebooks or other digital data. You just can't trust any of them. If the data is important to you, then the only one you can trust with it is yourself.
Edit: And using the euphemism "backup" is just another lie. It isn't really a backup copy, but the original, which is being held hostage by DRM.

... Modern day Snake Oil salesmen, but "ADEPT" makes a pretty label for the bottle. Unfortunately they're selling it to the publishers but making the end consumer drink the stuff.
Hilarious article though Adobe might want to reconsider their spokesman. It appears to me the only "stupid thing" people did was purchasing the DRM laden content from Adobe in the first place.
