Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Now users can finally read their books across multiple devices such as Amazon's Kindle, Sony Reader, Kobo eReader and Apple's iBooks.
It will be interesting to see if the likes of Amazon honour the publishers wishes, or whether they still insist on using DRM. This might finally damage the Kindle business model. In a similar situation, I recently purchased the new Stephen King audio book directlty from Simon & Schuster, as it is in a DRM free MP3 format. Who would buy from Audible if the same material was available elsewhere in a better format?
Ask a "western" muslim about this, you'll be horrified by their response. I guarantee it.
I'm sorry, but that is utter bullshit, or should I say pigshit, given the context. The penalty for apostacy in Islam is death. No discussion, no appeal, no equivocation. Many of your so-called "western" Muslims are the most fundamental of them all. This is a martial, militant and vile religion. No excuses. All right-minded people should be appalled by this. Utterly appalled.
Worshiping at the altar of non-religion is still worshiping.
That's a nice little sound-bite, but it really does not stand up to even trivial scrutiny. You cannot worship non-belief. There are simply too many things not to believe in.
That's being a bit pedantic - and a bit wrong. A quick survey of your favourite dictionary will show that Evangelical is a tightly bound to a religious connotation. In recent years some have started to use it to mean enthusiastic promotion of any subject, but the roots of the word are religious.
