The same can be applied to ebooks, you can comment on the formatting, crappy OCR, obnoxious DRM or whatever.
Actually, you cannot comment on the formatting, cappy OCR, obnoxious DRM or whatever unless you actually have the Kindle version. These are things that are specific to the different eBook versions. And you won't know of any errors unless you've read the Kindle version. So those sorts of issues are not good for a review unless you've read the eBook in question. So please keep reviews to the actual product and not go off on some tangent hat's irrelevant.
