So much for the dog eating your homework excuse now some can say well Amazon deleted it off the Kindle. Well now a kid is sueing (class action lawsuit). He spent the summer doing a summer reading assignment on the book "1984" when all of a sudden Kindle deleted it. It pulled that book and the book "Animal Farm" both written by Orwell. Not only did they stop selling it in thier store but they went in and remotely removed it from kindles that were already purchased. They did refund the money that users had paid for it.
For Justin that was not enough and he filed the lawsuit.
Forget blaming it on the dog, thanks to Amazon students have a 21st century excuse for lost homework. When Amazon foolishly yanked 1984 from thousands of Kindles, Justin Gawronski's electronic notes for a summer assignment became useless.
I can't blame him for being a little upset - I mean you already purchased it and they yank it. Sounds like Big Brother with a little to much power. What do you think?
OK I have to admit the picture that Gizmodo published with the story has to be the picture of the week
