Is Amazon the other BIG BROTHER?

Who would have thought the satirical novel Animal Farm written 1945 and the dystopian novel 1984 written in 1949 by George Orwell is relevant in today news? The irony about the latest news is how Amazon remotely deleted some digital editions of the books from the Kindle devices of readers who had bought them. Is Amazon the other BIG BROTHER?

Quote from NYT article

"Retailers of physical goods cannot, of course, force their way into a customer’s home to take back a purchase, no matter how bootlegged it turns out to be. Yet Amazon appears to maintain a unique tether to the digital content it sells for the Kindle."

"Justin Gawronski, a 17-year-old from the Detroit area, was reading “1984” on his Kindle for a summer assignment and lost all his notes and annotations when the file vanished. “They didn’t just take a book back, they stole my work,” he said."

Metric, a Canadian indie rock band just launched their new album "Fantasies"! Check them out at ilovemetric.com

"The function of music in my life is to help me understand what the hell is happening. This new record was about ending the fragmentation of my existence. Everything in the world right now — all the technology, the way we listen to music or watch films — everything has changed so much in my lifetime. People are allowed to have multiple identities — you're somebody online, you're somebody else in public — in multiple dimensions, scattered across the world… I wanted to bring all that into one place, one band, one record… I want to be one person." - Emily Haines

Metric will be on Late Show with David Letterman July 17, 2009!
