Kindle Users Revolt
Publishers, and other thin-skinned luddites, whine.
Conservatives cry "left wing conspiracy." Liberals cry "conservative conspiracy."
FWIW, I give lots of books I'm interested in a 1-star rating when the publiser refuses to put it out in Kindle format. Just as I'd give a product a 1-star rating if I had to pay an extra 50% to get it later than necessary, as well as put up with buying something with a needless brick chained to it.
Harper Collins and other publishers: You've already lost this one. Figure out a way to deliver e-books profitably, or you will be circumvented. That's a guarantee.
