Every few years there's a big fuss about the future of ebooks, and they never seem to get very far. Sure, a few early adopter types buy into the whole concept, but with clumsy readers, annoying digital rights management and a lack of content, they usually don't get very far. Here's yet another story, though, suggesting that, perhaps, the time has come for eBooks. The article quotes a study saying that eBooks are "the fastest growing segment of the publishing industry" which really isn't that impressive when you realize from what a small base they're starting, and considering that most of the publishing world is pretty well established. In absolute numbers, ebook sales are still a barely noticeable blip on the very distant outskirts of the radar.
