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.

ZOMG! Persistent ads on a screen the user would only see when they're not actually using the device as a trade off for lower costs... the bastards! How dare they put something that many users actually find useful in place of pictures of dead authors or lolcats!
