Why iBooks and Kindle app should look at Stanza.

The iPad has a big black border around the screen to hold it. A book has the same border on the pages.
However, dear people of Apple and Amazon, trying to duplicate the book pages exactly is a total waste of screen estate. We do not need a border within a border for our eBooks!

Have a look at Stanza who understands this. Maybe it is the way ePub books are generated, I don't know, but there is absolutely no use in having so much dead space around the text.
