Subsidized Amazon Kindle Owners Can Shed Ads – for a Price
I knew the second that Amazon unveiled the new Kindles that are $30 to $40 less than the regular unit in exchange for viewing ads that I would never want the cheaper version. $30 to $40 is barely a discount to permanently put up with annoying ads on something you are still paying for.

Adorable Bags Sexily Swaddle the Amazon Kindle
