I don't know but it does, for me. I can practically inhale PDFs on screen too.

My first bit of OS X/Cocoa coding (in 2000!) I read two or three Apple
PDFs in a couple of days and later realised I'd caned about 500 pages
of technical material, something i would never, ever be able to do
with paper based.

I basically don't buy books any more if there's an ebook option.
