PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Now here's an interesting little nugget Jeff Bezos didn't want you to know about when he introduced his new Kindle tablets: the Kindle Fire HD is ad-supported, and originally, you would not have been able to remove those advertisements from the device. Over the weekend, the company reversed this policy, allowing you to permanently remove the advertisements from your Fire HD for $15.

Kinda hard to make this one about Apple, isn't it? LOL I have an ad-supported Kindle and I rarely even notice the ads on it. Maybe it's because they are static black & white ads that only appear when you put the device into sleep mode in between reading sessions. We will see what the ads on the new Kindle Fire look like, but I doubt they will be as unobtrusive as on the readers.
