Or maybe "Herbal enhancement" ads in the margins?

And just wait until they start selling email addresses, with an opt-out system that they don't tell you about? Don't worry, they'll have plausible deniability when your email gets sold anyway. "Network issues" or the like.



Ten gets you one that this will be implemented in all versions of all reading devices within two years and you won't be able to get one that doesn't shout "HEAD ON! APPLY DIRECTLY TO THE BELLEND" every twenty four minutes.
yes of course, that's how they always turn out
paranoid much? You make it sound like a conspiracy, and it isn't. If they wanted something like that, they would update the current Kindles that everyone has right now and make that happen without the consumers knowing and with not a dime off their purchases.

$25.00 savings to saturate the life of the products with ads.

Keep your ad pushing nonsense.

Something just occurred to me. What is stopping someone from buying the ad-supported version, flashing the firmware from the normal version on, and saving 25 without getting spammed?

I wouldn't mind if they're at the bottom. If they're the first thing you see however, I'm not getting it...not like I'm going to get one anyways.
