Amazon – Proving that the Kindle is the stupidest thing in town

OK, so you bought a Kindle, and you bought some books for it. You pick it up to read something, and it’s not there. Maybe you meant to buy it and forgot. Maybe Amazon deleted it.

Seriously. When I first heard about this, I thought it was a mistake, but Amazon really does delete books from your Kindle, assuming that you allow it to go online, and since part of the reason to have a Kindle is to buy books while online, well…

Now Amazon has admitted that this was a stupid thing to do. Nice of them. The problem is that even though they’ve promised to never, never, do this again, they shouldn’t have done it in the first place. This isn’t apparently the first time they’ve done this, and the only reason that things got hot this time, was the content.

George Orwell’s 1984.
