    Bradbury didn’t think of that.

    Not to mention the smell of burning plastic. Peee-yuuu.

    Just as 451 was considered the burning point for books (paper), 1600 may be the melting point of the hardest metals in the devices.

    There is no need to burn e-readers for 1984 (not Ray Bradbury, I realize). The Ministry of Truth can simply change the contents of books electronically – so much easier than incinerating the old books and printing up new ones, then distressing them to look old.

    You realize that this is already enabled with proprietary e-readers, including Apple, Amazon, and Nook. The current justification is copyright protection, and it is only used to delete borrowed and censored works. But it is perfect for the Ministry of Truth.
    Search for “DRM” if you aren’t interested in the history lesson.
