That's a different model. Record companies don't make hardware, they're in the business of selling the software. (As an asde I still buy CDs because the reproduction from an MP3 is rubbish on any half-way decent stereo.)

Are very many people really going to shell out a minimum of $250 on hardware just to be able to read new content by Rowling and wave a wand around?
Based on the number of anoraks who spent far more buying multiple editions of the books, I'd say there's a far chance that there will be a reasonable number.

Corporations don't do things if they don't see a return. They don't always get it right, but they are rarely completely off-base.

A patriot is someone who wants the best for his country, including the best laws and the best ideals. It's something other people should call you -- you shouldn't call yourself that. People who call themselves patriots are usually liars. -- Donald Woods
