Why I do not like the Kindle

I will not tolerate Borders walking into my house and removing a book from my bookshelf, unless they show a search warrant from a magistrate. Why should it be any different with any other bookstore?

Such an event was only bothering me as a theoretical possibility but now it appears that something like this actually transpired: Amazon deletes purchased copies of 1984 from Kindle users' devices - it would have been even more ironic if the book in question had been Fahrenheit 450.
