Sir Maru:

What is unique about buying the Classics with Noet?  Amazon offers 1,543 Classics at zero cost here:

Scholars won't settle for translations. They need the originals.

And you've already got an English Dante. I've got it in my library. I've even got two, but one seems to be a PB.

This ^^ is exactly it.

I really hope Logos listens to what people are saying here.  And here:  http://community.logos.com/forums/t/73142.aspx. (the thread "Why "Send to Kindle" Must be a Priority"

Mike Grigoni:

There are several significant differences when it comes to reading the classics in Noet. The following question and answer is taken from the Noet.com/faq page.

How do Noet ebooks differ from ebooks in other platforms (Kindle, Nook, etc.)?

When used in the Noet mobile app, Noet ebooks support a host of unique features that allow for deeper textual engagement. These features include:

  • High-powered search tools that allow you to search your entire library or an individual ebook for an English or original-language word or phrase.
  • Split-screen view that allows you to sync related texts so that they scroll together as you read them. Sync Homer’s Odyssey and a commentary, so that as you turn the page of one text, the other automatically follows. Or sync a translation of the Iliad with the original Greek.
  • A Look Up tool that allows you to select an original-language word and access its gloss, lemma, and morphology.
  • A Word Study tool that allows you to link from an original-language word to its entry in a lexicon.
  • A Text Comparison tool that allows you to compare a passage across multiple translations.

Each of Mike's points here^ are exactly why focusing on original language texts is playing to Logos' strengths.

And why hauling out public domain translations - which we can get for free elsewhere - and hawking them on Logos, is a bad idea.
