Hard to know which is more alarming:Amazon.com's willingness to flout the privacy of people using its Kindle electronic readers, or its imperviousness to irony. The world's biggest online bookseller floored Kindle users when a major publisher changed its mind about allowing an electronic edition of two of its books to go out. Numerous copies had already been sold, so Amazon simply went into its customers' Kindle accounts, electronically deleted the books and credited the customners with refunds. The titles in question? 1984 and Animal Farm, by George Orwell.
