Is it any wonder people ask which EBR to buy?
From a recent article in the WSJ:
"Users of its proprietary Kindle device can purchase books only from an Amazon store, although they can read them on dozens of different devices that run Kindle software and can access free books from other sources."
It's no wonder that people believe the Kindle is restricted to Amazon.com. Shucks, I wouldn't want one that was shackled like that either.
It sure seems like this industry wants to put up road blocks to people wanting to get an EBR for the convenience of reading the book of their choice at the time of their choosing on their device of choice.

The biggest road block is geographic restriction.

eReaders need to be like netbooks - totally open with the ability to read any format from any store.
