After being informed by the 'fine-folks' at OverDrive ( Story Below: 'On Outsourcing' ) that they were simply going to cut their losses and refund the purchase price, rather then track-down and solve the problem- I went over to Amazon.Com and bought, then downloaded immediately and without a single glitch, the very same eBook.
I had to guess Adobe was figuring, "How many owners of Apples new dual-processor 2 GHz PowerPC G5 are interested in Digital Media anyway?"
As to OverDrives International Sales Director and Adobes Investor Relations people, They have still to have return that first call. See Rubric Immediately Below.
Footnote:I got an eMail a week or so ago from a staffer at Adobe, referred by Investor Relations, who is willing to look into this whole matter. After a thorough review the case was kicked upstairs to Level Seven Engineering, the Executive Team at Adobe Customer Quality Assurance. I have been notified that they are working on the entire problem and will get back to me. In the meantime I can only advise avoiding the Digital Media Servers, a.k.a. 'Media Editions' at Adobe until further notice. ('Email Me') if you have similar or related problems.
All you developers out there- I don't know for sure, but it's a safe bet, anyone who can offer up a better service than Adobe ( Let's remember, last year they earned in excess of 1.3 billion US dollars in revenue ) has to be successful. Think about it!!
Bad, Bad Blogs ...
I couldn't help but notice this article and reflect a little about the Singul.us weblog.
