    Someone has to be able to reach Mr. Goldstein and explain the value of creative commons to him. 2600 in particular would seem like an ideal property for creative commons eBooks.

    This is not the point. I refuse to pay for something that I have to break into to use how I want.

    Dang!

    Kindle only? Has someone kidnapped Goldstein and replaced him with a surgically altered Pisano?

    Wow finally – I figured I’d never see it off paper, because hard-copy publishing is mostly immune to hacking, and 2600 always seemed like it would be such a fat target… course I don’t have a Kindle, but the first one I find in the dumpster I’m there!

    Is this in that encrypted Kindle bullshit Mobi format? If so: it’s all kinds of wrong that 2600 Mag is on that defective-by-design assjack Kindle and not being distributed as an unencrypted epub book.
    2600, your kung-fu is weak. You fail.

    I’m starting to warm up to digital publications (particularly the beautiful and interactive EGMi – http://www.egmmag.com/) which are probably optimally enjoyed on a tabled PC, but I still enjoy them on my 22″ monitor. I’m not big on the idea of publishing in a proprietary vacuum like the Kindle marketplace, though. I’m a subscriber of 2600 and would love to have access to some sort of a searchable, web-based repository that works from any open device.

    Is it related to Atari 2600?

    Kindle DRM is pretty easy to break, or so I’ve heard anyway *coff* ;)
    But I think I’ll still keep subscribing to the paper version.
