The Kindle only allows the reading of Amazon DRM-protected content.
Amazon can do a lot of money only from selling kindle, like Apple does with the iPod.
As glued to the net as we all are, there's vast quantities of content that is not available online.
The Kindle DRM wasn't hacked to REMOVE the DRM from Kindle purchases, but added to other books so that they too could be read on the Kindle.
A revolutionary portable reader that wirelessly downloads books, newspapers, magazines and blogs to a crisp, high-resolution electronic paper display that looks and reads like real paper, even in bright sunlight.
