But for people like me what are we to do ? There is nothing quite like a solid would bookshelf with physical volumes in it, that you can run your hands over, that you know where it lives, as in a country village with nary a street sign or number. The smell of a quality paper and ink. What to do ? Perhaps it's time for holographic bookshelves with haptic feedback and wireless link to one's iPad. One can then fairly delude oneself in drawing a real book from a shelf only to have it appear on the iPad which itself could appear to take on the form of the physical volume.

 

Of course such an illusion would cost a pretty penny itself .... but one can dream.

 

Thx

But you still wouldnt have the smell or the ability to put under a wonky table leg.

I still enjoy using my leather bound common worship when sorting services.

Place for both hard and soft copies.

Just need to make a rrasoned descision which is required. For me, additional study bibles are e docs now and only adding books for things that will never get into accordance like by svs orthodox and Kenneth bailey publications. Also anything i need to lend or that my wife is likely to use as she wont use accordance.

I think it's time to end this thread. Helen has stated how things are.

If you want the NOAB, start writing letters to the OUP.

Now that I know that I will not bump it, and I have written OUP only to hear back things like we are happy to talk to developers... I only bumped it to display there is still an interest. I also realize that if it is at a point where talks are no longer useful, it is time to stop flogging a dead horse. I thought it was just stuck at the back of the stable being stubborn about coming out and was not meaning to ask for the moon.

@Dan:. At least Helen and co. can go to the OUP and demonstrate that there is a real demand for the NOAB within Accordance. However, if the OUP are inflexible with their terms then what can be done?

 

If OakTree took pre-orders then at least that would help them reevaluate if the terms from the OUP could be met and OakTree could at least break even on the initial investment.

 

FWIW This was the sort of argument that I heard working in graphic design: people pirated software because it was too expensive to buy; students had to pirate the tools in order to learn to use them, then they bought the software legitimately once they had proper jobs or started their own businesses and went legit. By pricing themselves out of the market developers found there were less people buying their products. So with fewer sales they raised prices to keep shareholders happy. :(

It's frustrating for sure... They have it in Kindle which is rather worthless... they have an older edition in WS but Wordsearch is not that great as a program and on mobile it is even worse. I cannot understand why OUP would not want to jump at the chance to have their premise product in one of the two premiere Bible software (I think over all ACC is better but I didn't want to start a discussion on is ACC the best). To be honest I bump this cause i had hoped not only that they could get it but that talks might be underway on numerous OUP products. some upgrades and other new ones like Oxford Bible Commentary. I do not expect to hear about on going talks and was just trying to be encouraging.... To have Helen pipe in this way leads me to believe not only is it unlikely but that talks are not even happening. I'd even be open to Olivetree at this point, but with them having their own competing product in the HCSB I can understand them not wanting the NOAB... When your own is generally rated at #2 with universities bringing in #1 makes no sense. 

 

I have serious considered in the past getting the kindle version striping the DRM and trying to make some sort of USER TOOL, but there is no real good way to make a usable commentary module  in Accordance... at least that I know of. I know how to do it FL, but since having it on my iPad is my main reason to want it doing that in the FL world makes no sense.

​Definitive an area in which Accordance has to mature.

 

"I know how to do it FL" -dan, yes and a lot other Bible software app let the user to do this.

Well, I'd say there is room for improvement, but you're right.

Helen, is there anything that us users can do to help you in your discussions with oup? They have some interesting volumes.

You are welcome to try to contact an Electronic Rights Manager; cannot hurt but I doubt it will help.
