He might be happy, but I'm not. What he sees as a utility premium I see as stuff that should be taken as a given when it comes to digital media. Believing you're getting better value in paying more for something you 'don't have to carry around' is exactly what publishers want you to think. At the end of the day you're still paying over the odds straight into the company's profits since they don't have to spend as much on printing, shipping, etc. And what's more, writers' royalty agreements certainly don't give them a bigger share of that profit pie (at least not yet).
