Free Microsoft Press eBooks

Microsoft are feeling a little bit generous and offering free eBooks for all the geeks, nerds and office fanboys out there... Shame they're all eBooks though, as could have done with the roll up paper afterwards.

PDF's don't work on e-book readers??? That I didn't know, as I thought that would be their native rendering format. Don't tell me... there is no standard format, right? Oh, dear, oh dear...

LOL if you're worried about big books, get a Mac! Of course, you have to pledge allegiance to Steve Jobs, cast your old life aside of all other devices to be incompatible with Mac, and follow the strict code of iOS to truly be accepted.
