And the shoe drops!

Google announces retail sales of ebooks for any Web-enabled device.

This, my friends, is the game-changing development that has been lurking in the background for years, but it wasn't at all clear how it was going to come about.

Wow.

It's true, I made an assumption that the Web connection was necessary only for the download. If that's not the case, and people are really being asked to pay just to have viewing rights, that drops the whole "easy to buy" part out of the picture, and I can't see it competing well with other ebooks. It also makes the whole DRM-free assumption moot, so there's that too.
