Technology on Sale

If you know me at all, you know how much I love technology.

After several years of being a wealthy person's toy, Amazon's Kindle is now affordable for everyone. At $189, it's finally in the realm of where even I want to run out and get one!

Check it out at http://www.amazon.com/Kindle-Wireless-Reading-Display-Generation/dp/B0015T963C/ref=pe_70020_16069360_fe_img_1/

I know in the past I've said how the piracy of books from such devices is a problem, but sales of books on Kindle, or Barnes and Noble's Nook are phenomenal, leading me to rethink it all.

Should I be seduced by money and have my Eyes of Garnet series put on the electronic market so those who use Kindle and Nook can read them, and say to hell with piracy?

Let me know your opinion.

I think it might be worth a shot. All new technology has its glitches and maybe if it becomes a huge problem don't put "Despite Them" on it. Would you know if "Garnet" is being pirated? I think getting all the exposure you can is a good thing!

That's the thing, I wouldn't know it was being pirated unless I could track actual sales. I'm not sure how Amazon's or Barnes and Noble's proprietary software works. Too bad I'm not a hacker!
