Amazon apologizes


Buried in Books


  1. Claire

    Have you seen this article at after ellen describing #amazonfail related deranking policies at work in spring of 2008?

  2. I’m curious about the Kindle situation myself. A friend of mine has a Kendle and she says that the article isn’t true, that you can buy “tons” of free books via the Internet. But I’m not that sure about the DRM issue and if Amazon can disable the device after you’ve bought it. Plus, is there anything in their information about the Kindle that “forbids” a user from getting a lot of books? Is there supposed to be some sort of limit? And if Amazon thought the owner was getting away with “something, ” what exactly was he doing wrong?
