Just a little shy of two months ago, I noted that I really, really liked the looks of the Kindle 2, etc., but that I simply could not in good faith allow someone else to hold my content hostage via DRM.
No doubt people scoffed at the possibility. Two months later, it happened to someone.
And I’m sure as hell never buying one.
…honestly, I’d probably have already ordered a Kindle 2. It looks like it resolved all my aesthetic issues with the original Kindle, and watching Jeff Bezos sling one around on The Daily Show, it looks light and easy. Oh, to be able to easily search books. And all that jazz.
But I’ll be goddamned if I’ll put myself in a position where someone can suddenly declare that I can’t read the book I damned well paid for.
