    .... http://www.engadget.com/2012/09/07/amazon-confirms-yes-you-can-opt-out-of-ads-on-new-kindle-fire/   I have seen the error of my ways
  .... Lots of people. .... Moving on.
  News and Sports are the only reason I haven't cut the cable(well, on demand is nice too, but that more was more or less a response to online content anyways).  Everything else is more convenient to either watch online or wait for the DVD's
  I love it when people don't know the proper use of ironic, yet are trying to say I am wrong for not using quotations/documentation in a non formal setting.   And what was apparently missed was my attempt at absurdity to illustrate how simple that piece of information would be to find. 
Appleinsider is a news/rumors site, I am not(wasn't sure if you were aware).  Comparing a persons comment on a forum to an article on news site is rediculous.    All i am saying is that for something that is really easy to find, consult google.  If it is some statistic/quote/etc where the detail is important, then provide a link.  Otherwise, the person asking for the link is being lazy.
  Yes, because I am currently writing a dissertation that includes a detailed cost benefit analaysis of the Ad supported kindle vs the ad free kinde...  Oh wait, Im not doing that, I am posting in a forum.  But your right, I guess going forward we need to implement a quotation system for AI.  My preferred method is footnotes, but maybe AI will implement a standard citation system...
  This whole "link?" trend really needs to stop.  Its not like I am quoting some crazy statistic.  If you want a link, here is what you do.    1.  Go to google, or bing, or yahoo, or altavista(are they even around anymore) 2.  Type in Kindle fire HD remove advertising 3.  Hit Go, Search, Bing, or whatever search button terminology the site uses 4.  Bunch of links magically appear.    Since that is too difficult and I obviously love to make up stuff that could very easily...
Its already been confirmed that the advertising can be removed on these new kindles, so it really isn't a big deal...
  Look, I am not saying apple is guilty, I am saying that it was what this case is about.  The presence of individual agreements doesn't preclude the possibility of collusion.  Obviously the DOJ thinks they have a strong case, and the fact that a few of the publishers have already settled should probably be a concern for apple.  You keep talking Amazon tax, but once again this tax didn't even exist under the wholesale model, it came with the switch to agency agreements....
  Once again you seem to be missing the point.  The case is that these 5 publishers and Apple colluded to change the pricing method and it appears to have had a negative effect on the consumer.  This case is about collusion, not about laws specific to a subsection of books released.  As for pricing, all you had to do was click on an earlier link(posted by someone else) to see your wrong about the percentage of money amazon keeps, they have multiple publishing options. You...
