Well, I contacted Audible again... and raised in a live chat the point that according to the emails they sent me, they have been "working" on a codec for Linux since 2009... without success.

I said, "it would be a travesty if this was a lie simply told to put people off, wouldn't it."

They said, "they are still working on it, they are not lying to you sir they are just taking a very long time so I apologize"

I don't know if I should laugh or cry... how stupid do they think we are?

I pointed out that in this time Valve has managed to port over 1000 entire games, and that's rather a lot more than 1 tiny codec, but they said, "It has been my pleasure to help you today. We are here 24/7 if you need further assistance. Have a nice day and enjoy your listening!"
Just a talking point here, but if you think this is interesting, please link to this post if you can, rather than share it to keep all the comments… - James Lewis - Google+

Can imagine that there's a user story right at the bottom of their product backlog hence "working on it... (Maybe)" pretty sad state of affairs really.

This is why we can't have nice things!

I love the way he sharpens them menacingly whilst staring the carcass down.

Nice to see a lighter side to the usual US political nonsense.

An amazing story. My 1st thought was is it just me or do those look more like mandarines than oranges. Then I found out a mandarine is a type of orange. Guess you learn something new every day.
