Microsoft's ebook plans trashed by Mobipocket

"One of the largest publishing concerns in the world, a firm so ancient they've got a background in alchemy, is rumored to be converting all their scientific journals into the "read anywhere" Mobipocket .prc format, years after turning down a proposal from the Beast that they migrate everything to MS's .lit."

subheading of the article refers to "Elsevier" which is the publisher of the scientific journals written about in the above quote
http://www.Elsevier.com

Someone turned Microsoft down? I didn't think I would ever read that written anywhere after Intuit refused to be bought out and let Microsoft come to own Quicken.
Sounds good, but I think Palm Reader Pro is still going to be my market eBook reader of choice. It's very user-friendly, and there are a lot of popular titles available by now.
