Is Google Plotting an e-Book Coup?

The Times of London is reporting that Google may be working to change the e-Book scene. According to the report:

The internet search giant is working on a system that would allow readers to download entire books to their computers in a format that they could read on screen or on mobile devices such as a Blackberry.


This is an interesting report for two reasons. First, Google took lots of flack for their desire to make every book in print searchable. The problems came from those who were concerned over copyright issues and theft. Fascinating that some publishers reported an increase in sales with Google’s system in place. Second, anything would be better than the crippled DRM schemes we have for e-Books currently. I say go Google!
