Since Amazon announced its new line of Kindle Fire tablets, there’s been confusion over whether the company would allow users to avoid seeing “Special Offer” promotions on their lock screens. According to CNET, an Amazon spokesperson has now confirmed that there is no system for disabling ads on new models of the Kindle Fire.
Amazon is mistaken. I haven’t seen a single ad on a Kindle Fire, ever. And I’m pretty sure I will never say one in the future either.
