What is “1984”? (by George Orwell)


Results will go up on the main page late afternoon, with full stats early evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of the main page.

According to this article on Slate, someone haduploaded bootlegged copies using the Kindle Store’s self-publishing system, and Amazon was only trying to look after publishers’ intellectual property. But, of course, the irony was too amusing. Shortly after the incident, Amazon was sued and settled, promising in the settlement it would only delete books from Kindles if specific conditions were met.

A “regulatory body” requesting Amazon delete books would never actually happen in America, though, would it?

  2. Oh boy…Keith Williams is surely gonna be ranting about Jennifer’s wagering strategy because this was an opportunity for her to win, and she missed it.

      Between last night and tonight, I’m sure we’ll be hearing stories about Keith undergoing a liver ultrasound in a few months.

      To that end: “the chance that the trailer wagers short in a crush” happens often enough that it’s going to be included in my strategy model.

  3. Please don’t forget to add $100,000 Teen Tournament winner Sharath Narayan to the TOC Tracker.
