How the hell is this not prior art?
ETA: Wondering whether this qualifies as prior art?
Information qualifies -- it doesn't have to have been implemented, the way a patent application has to have at least a demonstration implementation. Patents are given for _nonobvious_ innovation. It's not like the RocketBook -- and reviews thereof that describe things like selling newspapers on them -- were somehow trade secret protected. And the date on the review is earlier than the date on the patent application.
The RocketBook included encryption/decryption, stuff potentially sold online through Amazon.com, downloaded to a home system then loaded onto the reader -- which sounds a lot like what the patent covers, the only exception being that the patent covers a business process for owning the whole stream (operations center + home system).
