Adobe is Spying on Users, Collecting Data on Their eBook Libraries

 

Adobe Digital Editions is a widely used eBook reading software for Windows, in particular a reader software for ePUB and PDF, both formats published by Help & Manual.

We use ADE for proofreading, too. But only for that. A much better solution is the free eBook reader Calibre, which we strongly recommend.
