Well, it would be quite difficult to fail more spectacularly than Sony failed with their Librie.
Do you remember Librie? The very first e-paper featuring reader. You could only read the content you purchased from Sony.
You could not read any other ebook on Librie.
You could not read Librie ebook in any other device.
Customers in Japan are more used to this kind of treatment than Americans, and yet Librie failed miserably even in Japan.
The Librie got hacked eventually, even if there were much fewer users that wanted or needed it hacked.
