Hi, folks.

Ellis Pratt's 'Trends in Technical Communication' is the first time I've come across something I'd really like to read that appears to be available only on the Kindle.

As I understand it, the e-book world is currently duking it out, and items available on one e-book format may not be available on another. So, if you buy the wrong hardware you may be limited to much less content than if you bought another. Also, some hardware has graphics and color capabilities, some doesn't -- is that correct?

Has anyone on the list sorted through these issues?

Did such a discussion whiz by on the list and I missed it? If so, point me in the right direction and I will dig in.
