This made me angry

Fine to delete your own copies... but you can't take something back that you sold without consent of the customer!
1984 is my second-favourite book (first fav is Lord of the Flies).

Amazon Secretly Removes 1984 from the Kindle
Thousands of people last week discovered that Amazon had quietly removed electronic copies of George Orwell's 1984 from their Kindle e-book readers. In the process, Amazon revealed how easy censorship will be in the Kindle age.

;_; Fuck. And I was almost thinking about getting a Kindle once they offer it in Europe. No. No. No.

I thought of getting one a while ago. One of my friends read this and reminded me that Sony makes one called Reader where you can just upload your own book files and don't need to only buy books from Amazon.
But I would rather get one to use for text books, to lighten my rucksack.

I hear Amazon and Apple are working on adding a radio to their Kindle/iPhones that would send a "devolve into survival of the fittest mob mentality" signal to all it's owners, so there's a still a chance for your double.
