There are comnpanies who like to tell you that you need to go with them,
that you need their setup, that standard formats don't work, and that
only they can save you from copying, but that's not quite the same thing !
android and iphony both handle PDF happily. The early kindle is a bit of a
mess but there are apps for users that can do the conversion for the poor
things and Kindle DX and later can speak to adults without help.
Some of the early dedicated systems only speak epub/mobi type stuff which
really can't cope with magazine layouts anyway. I think its a fair guess
they'll be extinct in a couple of years.
