Jeff [Bezos, CEO de Amazon], if you are reading this, way to go! You've just given Amazon a black eye and your reputation has gone down the toilet. Well done!Algunos, en mi misma línea, toman esta historia como un aviso más de la actitud que está tomando Amazon, y de lo que realmente implica el cuello de botella de la plataforma Amazon
This would seem to encourage other providers to enable their books on other devices wherever possible or come out with their own device (in fact, more rumors of an Apple device as of yesterday). Pretty shortsighted, as I am sure time will tell....Otros ponen en términos muy crudos lo que realmente significa ser clientes de Amazon Kindle
So basically the message I am getting from Amazon is....Algunos usuarios piden una rebelión abierta
You bought a Kindle, now we own your *ss.
Jeff Bezos has been on TV somewhat plugging the K2. But what he purposely doesn't tell people is that once you get a Kindle, they own you.Y otros les piden a la competencia que tome nota:
My suggestion is that anyone who has a K2, return it since it's less then 30-days and include a letter telling Amazon EXACTLY why you are returning it. Let them know how disgusted you are at this DMCA notice. Maybe they will listen, but probably not. But it cannot hurt to try. Then go out and get a Sony or EZ Reader/BeBook or Gen3 and be happy Amazon no longer owns you.
BARNES & NOBLE: Are you taking notes? This is a great example of how to alienate loyal customers.
I'm actually surprised they would do this. It seems like a clear admission that they are using DRM for anti-competitive practices. Wouldn't it put them at risk of the American antitrust laws?
I will not be returning my K2 or selling my K1, I still love the Kindle and I will continue to purchase Kindle books.
Will I buy K3? Probably not. Will I continue to be an unpaid salesperson for the Kindle? No. Will I continue to help other Kindle owners? Yes, as much as I possibly can.
