Free Reading Apps
business-model = never thought of this -- build a hardware device, sell it... but give the software that enables people to buy apps for it, away for free -- good because people don't have to buy your hardware device, but if they download your app, it enables them to use their hardware to buy your (in this case) ebooks --------------> This is sort of the reverse of what Boxee did --- they started with a free software product and are now building a hardware device with Netgear or whoever, that they will sell which makes it easy for people who don't want to build their own Boxee box and all the trouble that itmight entail to build a small PC, install an OS, etc, etc.
