Some E-Books Are More Equal Than Others

Some E-Books Are More Equal Than Others: "Amazon, whose business lives and dies by publisher happiness, caved. It electronically deleted all books by this author from people’s Kindles and credited their accounts for the price."

"The author who was the victim of this Big Brotherish plot was none other than George Orwell. And the books were “1984” and “Animal Farm.”"

Hah! The books disappeared one by one as the clocks struck thirteen.

I love the idea of a passive electronic reader, but hate the form factor of the Kindle ...
Besides the fact that they flash fright-white between pages.
