Adobe v Microsoft: The Next Move

Richard Crocker

Microsoft has just made its first PDF creation product available free for download from its web site, making good on its promise months ago to give the tools away. If you remember our original story, after much wrangling with Adobe, Microsoft backed down on providing the functionality inside its Microsoft Office 2007 range of products. Instead, it announced it would give them away free via download to any Microsoft Office 2007 user. Adobe had wanted Microsoft to charge for the software.

What Does Google Want Us to Do With All These Free PDF eBooks?

Richard Crocker

If you haven't heard yet, Google has just announced that a bunch of the books it has been scanning for its Google Books Library Program are now available for free download as PDFs. There's no doubt Google needs to be applauded for the idea, but the execution (i.e. the books they've produced) could definitely do with some work. The PDF books are difficult to download, large in size, of such low resolution they're difficult to read, cannot be searched, and do not allow the user to copy text from them. It's left me wondering what Google expects people to do with the books.
