The Kindle stayed in it's leather case, but the point at which the two small metal pegs attached to the unreinforced plastic caused a fracture which got worse until the $360 kindle was useless. Amazon "customer service" says it's no design flaw and will only repair it for $200!
What a rip-off!
"We do not comment on active litigation. Nevertheless, we encourage anyone who has an issue with the cover-attachment mechanism to return the cover and device for a free replacement so we can investigate further."
"If they would like to resolve the matter, I think the way to do it is through a court-approved process. What I'm concerned about is it may not take care of all the class members. What we want is a consistent and comprehensive resolution for everyone who has been affected by this problem and will be affected in the future."
What Amazon won't replace: The copies of 1984 and Animal Farm that you "bought" and downloaded... and Amazon then deleted without notice to make some publisher with regional distribution rights happy.
It's like coming into your house, taking back your books from your bookshelf, and leaving you a gift-card for their store as compensation. As if I'd spend any more money with them.
The Kindle may be "cool", but consider the alternatives and avoid any DRM'd content like the plague.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
Oh wow, way to go Amazon! You rule!
