“I wish I could blame this on shoddy craftsmanship or a DRM snafu, but I’m guessing this is probably the result of my foot. All I know is that I put it in my bag one morning and when I removed it in the afternoon the screen no longer updated. There’s not a crack, per se, but you can tell it looks like something fractured underneath the plastic.” – Joel Johnson in Boing Boing Gadgets.
The TeleRead take: The good news—let’s hope it is—is that Amazon told a commenter it would replace the unit under such circumstances. The broken unit was a press freebie.
