Ann Arbor, MI - Emboldened by the recent
court victory of Barnes and Noble against Amazon's
Patented One-Click system, BBspot (a tech humor web site)
has decided to go forward and offer their One-Click Stories.
"Our technology stores all the reader information
that is required to read a story in our database and when a reader
utilizes our One-Click Stories it's just click-and-read," said
BBspot Editor Brian Briggs.
The BBspot One-Click system is also touted as being
more efficient than the Amazon One-Click System. Mr. Briggs said, "The
Amazon system should be renamed the 1-Click-and-Wait system. You

Warland. "I'll wait until the smoke clears and until then
I'll just use standard links for my stories and not the Single-Click
Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos was infuriated, "We don't
break out our lawsuits by the company we've filed them against,
but I can say with great confidence that BBspot is probably on
that list. As soon as we have some money to pay our lawyers we'll
be filing suit. Of course everything we do is to enhance the experience
for shoppers at Amazon.com."
