Amazon selling privacy-rape? STOP allowing amazon abuse! Trade not privacy for cash. “discount” kindle is not a bargain and AdMash is more evil

Who is insane enough to “sell” their privacy for $25?

Twenty five WHOLE dollars off a kindle to tolerate malware? *

NO

NO

NOOO

Here’s how it works. AdMash will show you two different screensavers and then ask you to vote for the one you like best.

NEITHER!  I like zero ads.  I see zero ads.  I am certainly not paying to see ads! WTH

adservers are “privacy rape”.  That’s the best turn of phrase I’ve yet seen.

How many of the feckless  hoard will give [waste] their time helping the evil adservers craft eviler ads with Amazon AdMash?

A malware powered kindle ought be ZERO out of pocket cost AND CONTINUE paying the user at the very least for the high privacy loss cost. AND in n-ambiguous terms should explain the actual cost of using such evil software

No statement on privacy assurance?  even on not voting tablets?

Where’s the “I changed my mind here’s twenty five dollars turn off this evil amazon crapware” option?

Amazon giving away “free” software?  That’s incentivising DRM installation.  And a secure platform too.  Why it was minutes before that aviary genocide rio game was cracked, liberated of its drm wrapper.  DRM encourages piracy and amuses crackers.  My android device has few drm teeth not kicked in and those remaining bite nothing.  I sync my life through exchange and tinker with funambol.  I don’t trust ad purveyors with my privacy: I don’t trust google and now I have reason to distrust amazon who has so well served me as a retailer.

[insert SIP call me widget here]

too bad wp hosted blogs are widget hostile.  Let’s have a wp wrapper for sip call widgets!

* Adware is by definition malware
