Clueless publishers go for specialized formats
"If you want to read about a dumb idea resulting from lack of coordination by sectors of the publishing industry, then this is your lucky day. Here goes: Imagine if you had to use the AOL browser to visit any newspaper's websites, but had to use Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 to visit any magazine's sites, but had to use Opera 6 to visit any broadcaster's sites, but had to use Netscape 6 to visit any e-commerce site. OK, that's far fetched, but something similar is really happening in regard to the new Tablet PCs: Zinio and the magazine industry are unveiling proprietary software designed for reading magazines on Tablet PCs. Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Times, Adobe Inc., and Kent State University's Institute for Cyberinformation are unveiling software for reading newspapers on Tablet PCs. McGraw-Hill, the AOL Time Warner Book Group, and other academic publishers are formulating other software designed for reading textbooks on Tablet PCs. And I wouldn't be surprised if the catalog industry is working on its own proprietary software for Tablet PCs." - Vin Crosbie, E-Media Tidbits, Nov. 11.
