…and it couldn’t come too soon. This all reminds me of the early days of digital photography and web design when there were multiple image fileÂ formats fighting it out for dominance.
Windows Bitmaps versus GIF’s and TIFFS and little ole’ JPG’s brawling it outÂ in the back alleys of the Internet Highway. While we know the market finally put all of these formats into their properÂ places, we know who came out on top, dominating both display and printed imaging.
You know the publishers are blowing a bundle prepping and organizing their backlists in the various formats. They use that necessary redundancy as an excuse, one of the reasons at leastÂ for the high prices they’re charging for eBooks. Let’s see if the price drops as the format fieldÂ narrows. Yah, right!
