In the verification it was a Sony Reader.
In Nate's case it was an epub reader that was not authorized to the app.

Just plugging it in triggers it, apparently.

That's what I was thinking, but I didn't think Baen used ADE or any DRM for that matter, so that's why it jumped out at me.
Baen ebooks typically contain calibre metadata as an artifact of their production process.

Can ADE tell the difference between an ebook which has never had DRM, and the same ebook which has had the Adobe DRM stripped from it (and therefore possibly pirated)?
In theory, the identifier in the OPF and NCX files should be unique to that book, and removing DRM does not change that.

In reality, if you've removed DRM in order to clean up the book's formatting and/or metadata, there's nothing stopping you from changing the identifier in the process.

Not looking to argue, just genuinely asking for my own edification.
In the United States, it comes from the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution. Specifically, "The right of the People to be secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures."

Very strange coincidence, but while I was sleeping (in the middle of reading this thread) my Kindle for Android app updated. Now it has a setting to disable data usage. It is called "Activity Data" - Automatically use data from this device to provide features through Whispersync for Books. If you disable it warns about possible missing features.

Connection to calling home in DE? If yes, than Amazon is fast in providing an option to opt out.

The option to disable Whispersync has always been available in the MYK settings page, so it looks like they've now added what is an on-device option rather than just an on/off setting that applies to all the devices registered to one account.

Yes, and I welcome the change. Not really out of privacy concerns, but for decreased data usage while on the go.

I'm trying to make sense of how/when ADE4 sends out the request for info.

Is it when an epub ereader is attached to the PC and ADE4 is on the PC and open?

Is it when an epub ereader with ADE registration is connected to the internet via it's own wifi?

Is it when an epub ereader is connected to Calibre?

Is it when an epub ereader is connected to Calibre and ADE4 has been activated on the PC but not necessarily open at the same time that the ereader is connected to Calibre?

Other?

It sounds to me like it's when ADE 4 is open and a Reader that uses ADE is attached is when ADE 4 has a look and sends back the results.

It sounds like number 2:
Open ADE 4 and if it sees a reader it will scan it and report.
Even if the reader is not authorized.


From the link above:

Quote:

Platform: Win7 with ADE4.0 and Sony Reader Software installed.

Fired up Wireshark.
Connected Sony Reader to PC via USB cable
Started ADE 4.0
Sony Reader shows up as two device in ADE: PRS-600 and "SD Card in PRS-600"
Opened a book in the DE library and flipped through a couple pages.
Captured the output.
Several of the books, e.g., "The City & The City", come from the Sony Reader and were never imported into an ADE library.
Reporting on a book being opened for sync is one thing--scraping any random reader it finds and autonomously reporting on it is a whole different story.

Sideloading has its uses.
Which is why some outfits have a problem with it...

I suppose it would be bad form for me to edit the metadata in my ebooks to include, "Arrgh, matey! This be a pirated file!"

Just to brighten their day over at Adobe.
