I would love to have our book content on more devices but 1) they're either difficult vendors to deal with (looking @ you B&N Nook) or 2) the ePub version is not secure enough to protect author's rights.

I wondered why Lifehacker stopped updating its RSS feed when new articles no longer appeared in my Google Currents. When I learned they switched to Tumblr it seemed a little odd--but only a little.
