Similarly, we can't assume that they're not using PRS+

We can safely assume the OP does not use a custom software usable only on a very old series of a single manufacturer.

Installing a custom firmware is a serious adventure even for men, let alone women, it's not like changing a light bulb.

My take is that the book has longer than 260kB chapters/files. Is the simplest logical explanation that takes into account all the given data and make no assumptions (the good old aristotlian principle of parcimony, known in the anglo-saxonian world as occam's razor) when these are not needed to solve the problem. Or as the marquis of Laplace explained to Napoléon: Sire, I had no need of that hypothesis (of God)."

PS: Laplace presented his definitive work on the properties of the solar system to Napoleon. Napoleon asked Laplace if it was true that there was no mention of the solar system’s Creator (ie God) in his book. Laplace replied, “I had no need of that hypothesis.”. Well, unlike Newton who needed Him.
