kindle typos

Typos on the Kindle are infuriating. It's not that normal books don't have them. They do. It's just that they don't need to be on the Kindle. It's an eminently solvable crowd-sourcing problem. But there's no way to highlight errors on the Kindle. All the Kindle would need to do is provide a simple "Typo" option when you highlight text, send this data back up to Amazon/Publishers or send it to Mechanical Turk to get solved. Amazon, you don't have millions of readers. You have millions of proofreaders. Fix this please.
