In a surprisingly cheeky piece, the NY Times points out that the Amazon Kindle electronic reader has a few glitches in pronunciation, the most glaring of which is an inability to say “Barack Obama.” (Apparently it comes out sounding like “brack Alabama.”) Amazon has since fixed the pronunciation and will include it in an online update. Still, I’m thinking conspiracy. What else can’t you say, Kindle? “America”? Why do you hate our freedom?
