Where to buy tech e-books

I have adopted e-books in a big way. This is a quick post to register which publishers are selling tech e-books, and where. Most e-books they sell are more expensive than the Kindle versions sold at amazon.com, but are DRM-free and in several different formats such as EPUB, PDF, and MOBI. Some give lifetime e-book updates, will archive your e-books at services such as Dropbox, and give much cheaper e-book upgrades for print books.

I have intentionally left some sources out because they have a confusing online presence and are not known for selling e-books, like McGraw-Hill Professional. Not surprisingly, most of them are college text book publishers. Most book publishers for professionals have adopted e-books in a big way, and mostly offer e-books without DRM.
