    Apple and the iCould is the king of "access all your content from any device". So in an app called iTunes where I can listen to music and watch movies/shows I purchased from the store and where I puchase books and other items like books, I cannot read a book?

     

    Both the fact I cannot do this and the fact Apple expects I should read anything that says "you can't do that on your premium priced laptop" is 100% completely utterly rediculous.

     

    What a sad day to see Apple slitting it's own writs and letting this market opportunity slip away. Yea, I think I'll just go purchase this on Kindle, you know, the market leader in books who's your competitor. Thanks...

    We're not Apple here, just fellow users. So we will have no problems with you buying anything you feel meets your needs.

     

    I trust you're aware that you are not limited to buying books from the iTunes Store for an iOS device but can buy e-books from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or Google and read them on an iOS device as well as on a computer?

    I am, and Apple has been known to browse through here as well. So don't think it's just here.

     

    However I feel compelled to express my feelings of disbelieve and disappointment when Apple's competing book service they discussed at length in the October product launch has such a poor structure. So by all means, rest assured my purchases will be using Amazon Kindle from now on since their product managers seem have a brain.

     

    I thought that it would be cool to purchase the Steve Jobs biography on iBooks, and apparently I was wrong.

    Adobe digital does not work for DRM protected books from the Apple Store.  This is the reason I have spent thousands of dollars buying books on the Kindle store.  You can access your content on your laptop, what a revolutionary concept.  I can actually view the content I paid for on my laptop with th click of a button.  Never thought I'd live to see the day where Apple is behind Amazon in terms of product functionality and ease of use.

    Thanks everyone. It is fixed now. But now I have even more problems. If my car had this many problems it would be called a Ford or GM wouldn't it?

    Adobe Digital Editions does not work for Windows PC's if you want to read a book.  Downloaded, installed, dragged the .epub file to ADE, and all I get is a blank book.

    I might be convinced to continue to be a customer of thiers if I can read a book on my PC.  Otherwise, I'm done.

    Cecil, i agree. Apple is the lamest company in the world, albeit one of the richest. Cannot play my entire library of music from iphone to Android. Cannot read books. Cannot watch movies. In short, it is amazing to me that these idiots have been so successful. What is even more bewildering is the high minded, entitled arrogance of their sales force (brainwashed by corporate for just this purpose) to offend. Geniuses!! Hah, what a joke! I hope they become a bad memory soon. They only people more stupid are the sheep they've created who still drink their lemonade.
