Ironic., recently (and you have to believe, reluctantly) gave in to the Authors Guild over the Kindle 2's "Read-to-Me" feature. In that case the Authors Guild wanted restrictions placed on that text-to-speech feature. Now is ensuring it can restrict where you can buy e-books for your Kindle.

True, it's lame. You'd expect that even if people are purchasing their e-books from somewhere else, having more e-books to choose from would also eventually lead to an increase in sales of the Kindle device itself.

I agree, limitations like this (proprietary content issues) are why I would hold out... real books work just fine and the numerous city libraries we have make it inexpensive...

I love technology though.. I am interested to see what will prevail on this issue.

Just to throw it out there; I like to donate old books to the library. Why throw away a perfectly good book? Instead, let someone else read it.
