Of course, even if it did support DRM there is no way to be sure that it would support the same DRM as your library does anyway... or that it will support in a couple of years.... I better stop before I get into another anti-DRM rant.

Of course, even if you never buy a book or use a public library, there are literally tens thousands of works available legally online for free.

Of course. And if you don't mind waiting [at least] 70 years to read a new book, then you are golden. Of course, there is always illegal(?) removing the DRM path.

Anybody have any luck in changing the fonts or adjusting the margins? Is it possible to load a book with its own embedded fonts and margins?

It probably not important for many users, but I find that a nice font led to a more comfortable reading.

No not mine. I just came across it on youtube and liked the style. The jetBook looks very cool (especially after epub and mobiepocket support is added. I think I read tomorrow?) but I already have a Kindle 1 and have made up my mind to get an iPod Touch to compliment it. I work nights so when I am at work (outdoors too) I need a backlight.

Yes, that is what they said. I look forward to hear if 1) they actually release it and 2) how it works.
