About Nate Hoffelder (11586 Articles)
Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. With regard to Baldur Bjarnason’s posts, I’ve got a simpler way to look at the problem of Javascript in eBooks: Any EPUB3 reader has to support Javascript by definition, and many other eReaders support Javascript by choice. In general, those eReaders are built on top of an existing browser engine, such as WebKit. Browsers are being updated all the time to fix bugs and deal with security exploits. Unless an eReader is being updated as frequently as the browser engine it’s based on, you have to assume that it doesn’t have all the current security patches.

    How often have you seen an eReader be updated as frequently as modern browsers?
