Airport X-Ray Machines Killing Kindles?

Traveling during the holidays? Own a Kindle? Well then, you should probably read this.

According to the UK's Telegraph newspaper, Kindle owners have said their e-book readers produced blank screens and were nonfunctional after passing through the X-ray machines at European airports. Amazon has replaced users' dead Kindles, and the company stresses that airport security scanners aren't to blame. An Amazon spokesman told the Telegraph, "Many Kindle users travel by air, and their Kindles are screened by airport security every day without issue."
