OK, I bite my tongue and get the update to iOs 8.whatev, hoping finally they will address the fact that they screwed up iBooks, after they made it mysteriously no longer display an epub as the code is written (I really dont know how that works) with iOS8. WRONG! NOT only does it still display wrong, other ebooks, particularly fixed layout with enhanced capabilities, are now nonfunctional. They have doubled down on making sure nothing but books made with iBooks Author work as they are meant to. They are trying to be like Kindle no doubt, creating their own proprietary world of e-reading where you either bend to their will or you're out of luck. Forget a unified standard for epub where everyone plays nicely with their peers. They used to be the best displayed ereader going and now they have forced me all the way to kindle. iBooks never really sold near as well as kindle and only slightly better than nook or all the others. Screw you iBooks, I'm going home.
