Apple dissing Adobe's (buggy?) e-book DRM for iPad

ericatcw (1194651) writes "Adobe confirms that Apple isn't using its e-book DRM technology for the coming iPad, lending support to reports that Apple will use its own FairPlay DRM, which it uses to copy protect movies sold through iTunes. Adobe says Apple is trying to lock in customers to its iPad the same way Amazon is with its non-open-standard Kindle text formats and DRM. (It also says it can still deliver Flash to the iPad and iPhone, ban or no ban, through clever backdoors). But others say Adobe's DRM is neither as interoperable between e-reader devices nor as secure as promised. So where do you stand on the great Adobe-Apple battle?"
