I love my Kindle. And to be honest, the DRM really doesn't bother me. I only own a Kindle, so i'm not fussed about not being able to read my ebooks on the iPad i don't own. I'm not going to read them on my phone, and nor am i going to read books on my pc. I recently had to send my Kindle back to John Lewis who replaced it for me. Not a problem recovering my books; just go online, de-register my old one, register my new one, and re-send my books. Next, hook it up to the wireless network and it goes about receiving all the books. Simples. That's why i love it; it's just so easy. The e-ink is great. It looks almost fake when you see it at first; as if it's a display unit that's had the text printed on it but you get used to it. The battery life is impressive also.
