Anyhow, established spelling traditions seem to be loosening. My reference in 
the matter is the following, and has been for decades for many:

Also see,

In MLA style, proper nouns ending in s that are singular follow the general rule and 
add ’s :

Athens’s history
Diogenes’s philosophy
Alexandre Dumas’s novels
Some styles may allow you to add only an apostrophe: Athens’ history, Diogenes’ 
philosophy, Dumas’ novels.

My source is much simpler; how would I say it out loud, in conversation? That means I will possibly be inconsistent. I can't imagine saying "I bought Piers's E-400" Of the above examples, though, I can imagine saying "I've read only a couple of Dumas's novels.", but would not add apostrophal esses to the others.
