  1. “lifetime access to purchased titles guaranteed.”

    P.G.

    After today’s announcement regarding Fictionwise, not feeling to optimistic about that.

  2. The ability to have lifetime updates to the For Dummies books alone might convince me to buy their books in e-format – they are very nice for learning something, but take up a lot of shelf space, and I never want to throw them away (though I wish many of them DID get updated).

    This will be a GOOD THING in my plan to digitize and miniaturize my life – so I can store a backup in the cloud, and take only a hard drive with me if I ever get my dream of living in a Tiny House (google) and traveling around the country. With a very large monitor bolted to the wall.

  3. They only made this deal because their names rhyme. Go ahead, say it with me… ;)
