So because I have an iPod Touch registered to my Amazon account, if I was to get Kindle for Windows, would I be able to remove the DRM using the iPod's PID?

I have absolutely no clue. Perhaps someone more knowledgeable could answer.

Assuming it will work the same as all existing "devices", your Windows PC will have its own PID and when you download to your PC from Amazon you will need to choose the target "device" which in this case is your PC. So far, all DRMed Kindle ebooks are targeted to a single device (i.e. they contain only one PID).

If we can discover the Kindle PID for a Windows PC, then for most ebooks the standard 6 device limit allows you to "read" the ebook on both your Touch and on the Windows PC. So just download it to your PC and strip the DRM using the Windows PID.

Ok, I'm confused.

I have a Kindle2 and an iPhone with Kindle app. I have originally purchased books on both, but I can read *any* ebook purchased on either device at the same time. Why would anything be different with Kindle for PC ?

{Ok.. never mind.. Just reread the thread. Talking about DRM}

I'm getting second thoughts here.

If I download a book from Amazon, once its on my computer, they have no further knowledge of what I may or may not do with it.

If I download their pc app, on the other hand......could that possibly change?

Well, they can tell what you do with it within the application itself -- that's how it's going to be able to sync pages between the desktop and Kindle versions.

If you're asking if they can figure out if you strip the DRM on a file, assuming we can ever figure out the PID, I would say no, unless you re-import the de-DRM'd version back into the application.

If you're asking if they can track the file if you rename it and copy it to a different directory and never open it in the Kindle app, then I would say no, not absent some kind of included spyware. And if Amazon did that, it would make the Orwell thing look like a cakewalk by comparison when they are caught.
