as a PRS 500 owner on a mac I am getting really annoyed.....

First sony does not give prs 500 owners a firmware update with epub.
Then they announce the will go epub all the way in their store but without a clear statement on what they are going to do about the prs-500 owners out there, but promising an "upgrade path" to be available.
Now they finally release ebook library for Mac guess what ? It's not compatible with the prs-500.

I wish sony made a clear annoucement for us prs-500 owners already !!!!

I agree completely. I haven't bought a ebook in quite some time because of this mess. I hope they make an announcement soon regarding their intentions with the PRS-500.

I also am irritated that the Mac version doesn't support the 500. I booted into XP, and installed the new 3.0 version there, and it wouldn't even launch. I had to find a version of 2.5 on the web and reinstall that to get anything working at all.
