An anonymous reader writes “Amazon has started offering refunds to Kindle owners who own the unlit leather case who claim that it causes their Kindles to reboot, but are playing dumb on the cause: “our engineering team is looking into this.” People have been wondering how a leather cover could possibly crash an electronic device, and why is Amazon offering money back if they don’t think there’s a problem? It seems that some of the folks over at Connectify have figured it out, and it’s a doozy!”
