Submission + - Amazon wipes Kindle account of Norwegian customer and refuses to tell why (bekkelund.net)

Max Romantschuk writes: "Martin Bekkelund writes about his friend Linn, who had her Kindle wiped and account closed by Amazon, with Amazon refusing to say why. The only thing Amazon is saying seems to be that 'We have found your account is directly related to another which has been previously closed for abuse of our policies. As such, your Amazon.co.uk account has been closed and any open orders have been cancelled.' According to the blog post, Linn has only ever had a single Amazon account and has no idea how she could have done somethwing wrong.

Can we really trust corporations to wield this much power, while providing no transparency at all?"

Submission + - Revolutionary MF-401 Auto De-tune fixes music (moogmusic.com)

Max Romantschuk writes: "Moog Music has released the MF-401 Auto De-tune, a revolutionary new DSP-device that promises to undo the clinical results of Auto-Tune. According to Moog Music, "even a T-Pain vocal can be restored to its complete original character, scrubbing the pitch correction and leaving the untreated vocal in all its wavering sharp or flat glory." I for one welcome the return of our imperfect out-of-pitch-singing overlords."
