Think twice before using Amazon’s Unbox service

I had quite a bit of difficulty when installing Amazon's Unbox movie client. I never did get it to work and after reading an article about Amazon's user agreement, I'm quite happy that I didn't. Boing Boing has an excellent article that analyzes the user agreement and points out why you should think twice before downloading it.

Some of the points include:

1. The software may run continously on your computer even if you think you've turned it off.
2. If you uninstall the software, they reserve the right to delete the digital content that you've purchased. Nice!!
