This seems really dumb.  And annoying.  As we move more and more deeply into the world of ChromeBooks, we find more and more companies ensuring their products are compatible.  So, it’s jarring when we run into something that’s not compatible with these devices.  For example: ebooks.  We’ve got a large number of DRM encrypted ebooks for staff but they’re downloaded as .acsm files and there’s apparently no way to use a ChromeBook to view these files.   iOS, Android, Windows and Mac are all good - but not ChromeBooks

Am I missing something?
