Amazon strikes back! Battle of

Amazon figured out that people are starting to take apart/hack the Kindle so that we can increase the functionality. Amazon doesn't like that because that would mean we could read books from other sources. I suppose it was only a matter of time before Amazon went on the offensive.

I believe this is great news. Amazon pulling the DMCA card and the subsequent press coverage are great. Forum users from various sites have already expressed their outrage. They do not like what Amazon is doing. How dare they protect their IP? hehe.

It's only a matter of time before the "people" fight back. Soon, more and more hacks will be available and the Kindle will get better and better...for me. Just to spite Amazon, hackers that didn't care before are joining the ranks to take apart the Kindle. Huzzay!

I'm going to hack it too. I'm going super glue a bottle opener on it.
