Diesel eBooks DRM simulator - "try before you buy"

Diesel eBooks, one of the newer and most promising e-book stores, has a new feature which allows e-book newbies to download encrypted "test" e-books (available in Adobe Reader, Microsoft Reader and eReader format) before making a purchase. Excerpt from the press release:

L. Scott Redford, President of Diesel eBooks http://www.diesel-ebooks.com, states, "Downloading an encrypted ebook for the first time can be intimidating. While this fear has been a barrier to some in expanding their reading collection to ebooks, our hope is this free tool will take the fear out of the equation and create confidence in a smooth transaction."

Alexander Turcic, editor of the popular online community Mobileread http://www.mobileread.com, welcomes the new feature by Diesel eBooks: "In a perfect world, publishers would choose to distribute their best-sellers without DRM protection, and all customers would behave themselves and never pirate copyright-protected material. As long as we haven't reached this state yet, Diesel eBooks DRM simulator is a fast and effective alternative helping newbies to learn more about the advantageous use of digital books."
