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 makes me hopeful that a bright hacker will subvert the advert system and deliver every Kindle user a Penis Storm a la secondlife.

I’m going to miss the past of owning material things ;)
