mrsmith denies Sony the right to publish Dawkins opinion. What possible other conclusion is there to his opening posting?
"IMO, this tells me a few things.
1. Sony does not care that (according to numerous polls) that 90% of Americans believe in God. They are clearly interested in promoting their own agenda, regardless of the fact that it may insult 90% of their customers.
2. The choice of including this book demonstrates a policy that they agree with the content of the book, to the point that it should be promoted to every single person who purchases their ebook reader.
3. Sony is committed to this type of religious intolerance because it apparently has also been included for free on the new 700 model."
With absolute and utter respect for mrsmith's belief in a deity, that is a load of cobblers.
May all forum readers enjoy a happy and wonderful Year of the Ox.
