eBooks, digital magazines, etc...

http://www.digitalmediastore.adobe.com

Comes with a 10% discount coupon ADOBE10 on purchases through 12/31/03.

To bad the eBooks are in PDF - my most hated eBook format!

My personal #1 reason *against* Adobe PDF is the limited support to convert files to other formats. Plus, I don't like the way page numbers are usually tied to PDF files.

Someone else wrote a very detailed explanation why I am not the only one who believes that Adobe sucks...

Good article. It makes interesting reading, and explains very well the current problems with proprietary formats.
