Right now I use the Amazon Kindle Mac app because I cannot physically use a Kindle device to read my books. The Amazon Kindle Mac app works great and I will have no problem continuing to read my books through it. The prices of ebooks through Amazon are reasonable and the Mac Kindle app runs smoothly without any problems. But, I am the kind of guy that likes to keep my options open, especially when it comes to technology. I always like to try all different kinds of software and electronic gadgets that are on the market because it is always great to try new things, you never know when you will come across a gadget that will solve more problems for you and give you more satisfaction.
When you try different gadgets, it is amazing how many gadgets are out there that are terribly executed and complicated with a steep learning curve. The idea of technology is to solve problems for people, not create more problems and frustrations. How many times have you had a gadget that made you want to shatter it against the wall into a million pieces? It is an all too familiar feeling for me, especially when I was a Microsoft Windows user. Now that I am a Mac guy, my relationships with my gadgets and computers are very healthy. It's all love, I call my Mac's my babies.
That is why Apple is in existence, to make great products that make you fall in love with the gadget, not wanting to rain down a fury of destruction onto the gadget. It seems like it would be common sense when you are a company that develops products, to always produce a great product. But, that is pretty rare nowadays to find a company that will only produce great products. This is why I have so much admiration and respect for Apple, they understand that when you focus more effort towards developing great products, rather than fully on making a profit, the profits you make will increase as a result of passionately developing great products.
I want try to read ebooks through the Apple iBookstore, but I cannot use an iPhone or an iPad until Apple improves the accessibility features of iOS. Why doesn't Apple bring iBooks to the Mac? I know the iPad would be a great device to read books on, among other things, but it makes a lot of sense for Apple to make the iBooks available to read on the Mac. Apple would be able to reach many more customers if they released an iBooks Mac app.
