As an iOS 'fanboy' i have to tell you that both iOS and Android have a "kill switch". It's a measure for the really dangerous cases and Google has used it once or twice, and i guess Apple too (not shure atm). When jailbroken, you can turn it off on both platforms. But you are right in that there seems to be no such thing for books, unlike on Amazon (remember the 1984 case?)

Ah, you're right. I'm not sure why I was thinking there wasn't one for iOS.
