I'm looking for some help with ensuring my information about e-books purchased from certain companies is correct.

Thinking specifically of:

- Books on Google Play
- iBooks and
- Nook Books

For the average consumer, is it possible to easily get hold of the book files themselves?

So, if a book from those shops is DRM-free, can the owner of that book get hold of the file itself to read on another device or not?

I've found conflicting info and would appreciate help.

Many many thanks,

Kevin

Does anyone do personal security audits?
Like, I think I've set up 2FA and strong passwords everywhere important. But I'm sure I'm missing something.

Tried a Chromebook today. Impossible to get NextCloud / OwnCloud client running on it via Linux apps.
Can do it via Android apps, but then the Linux apps don't have access to the files it creates.
What a mess!

Electric car charging test. I plugged in using the normal 240V charger in the evening. Was able to power the car partly from my home's battery.
Might be better doing that rather than the 7kW charger.
