From HuffPo: Group protests Kindle e-reader's read-aloud restrictions

Thought y'all might find this interesting. The main thing I find interesting is that this is in the "relative mainstream" media rather than just a gadget blog...

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/0..._n_184277.html

"NEW YORK A group representing the blind and other people with disabilities protested limitations to the new read-aloud feature on Amazon.com Inc.'s latest Kindle electronic reader Tuesday, arguing that the restrictions unfairly limit their access to e-books."

Discuss amongst yourselves... or not!
