Hey Alex, thanks for sending this out -- I was going to alert you all today, but you beat me to it!
We were originally trying to get the issue into the iBookstore. After the file languished in the "pending" category for 3 weeks, the file was then marked "removed from sale" with no explanation.
Long story short, Kindle was not our first option, but I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to get the issue up there, and now it is available in a digital format. And at least you can get a Kindle app on devices other than the Kindle. (I downloaded the issue on my iPhone in less than 5 minutes, including downloading the Kindle app.)
Ideally, there would be 1 digital format, and the files you purchase from any distribution site could be moved between devices and eReaders. I'm sure it will happen eventually, but at the moment choices are somewhat limited.
