Amazon Kindle users have their very own 1984 moment

Amazon remotely deleted books from its Kindle users' library, including George Orwell's classic 1984. "It's like having Barnes & Noble sell you a book, charge your Visa and then 3 months later change their mind, credit your card and demand their book be returned". Tough especially when you are in the middle of reading it.... Beware, Big Brother is watching what you read. Guardian article.

En effet, ca laisse reveur... Mais vu que tous les modes de consommation vont peu a peu se rapprocher de ce modele, est ce qu'on peut esperer ne pas avoir big brother sur le dos? J'ai l'impression qu'on peut pas trop y echapper non?
