The Morning Coffee – 8 October 2013

Top stories this morning include a review of the Tesco Hudl tablet, a deeper look into the Adobe security hack, a new ebook publishing platform, and an interview of Waterstones managing director James Daunt. Be sure to read the second to last link; it's a funny satirical rebuttal of a ridiculous opinion piece about indie authors not truly being authors.

About Nate Hoffelder (11468 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."
