My New Year's resolution is to go direct to Apple. I've had it with Smashwords.
(Oh, and FYI...Smashwords is located in Los Gatos, CA -- Silicon Valley. Silicon Valley has so many semiconductor manufacturing plants that have to run continuously, but because lots of employees take off for Christmas it becomes too expensive to run the plant for the few people who are there, so as a result it's traditional in Silicon Valley to literally close everything down for 2 weeks in late December. Yes, I know Smashwords is not an engineering firm, but they probably take their cues from their colleagues and neighbors, particularly since Kobo and Apple are closed anyway.)
