    Quit whining. This is the Amazon ecosystem. If you prefer to pay a lot more then buy a competitor offering from Samsung or Apple. Or hack the system and run an alternative operating system installation.

    If the price is being subsized by advertising then I can see why they do it. People buy Kindle’s cause theyre cheap(er than an iPad) and cool. But locked advertising is uncool. I think they need to find a better way.

    It was a mistake to try to hide the advertising. Most people won’t care if the device is great and the price lower than others. Give them a yellow card.

    I think if this were a smaller company this wouldn’t fly. But since this is Amazon, one of the largest properties online, some people will complain then quickly forget about it. I guess that’s one of the perks to being as big as Amazon!
