Doubleplus Not Quite So Sucky

Amazon is backtracking from its 1984 snafu:

David Pogue says Amazon is doing the right thing in finally offering to return “1984″ – including users’ annotations – to Kindle users who had the book remotely ripped from their hands. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos sent out an email to those users today offering to give them a legitimate copy of the book, including any annotations they may have made, or a $30 refund if they don’t want the book.

Amazon should never have deleted Kindle users’ content in the first place, so this is mostly a too-little/too-late bit of bottom-covering.
