Ads, Ads, Ads and Maybe Some Reading

Yesterday Amazon announced their new ad-supported Kindle. They didn’t called it the Ad-Supported Kindle. They wrapped it in a cute little euphemism – Kindle With Special Offers.
Kindle With Special Offers (KWSO) – it’s like a Friend With Benefits – except the benefits are ads in your face. Awesome. But it’s cool, because your friend is a cheaper date because of the ads. Instead of the regular price of $139, the KWSO is only $114!
I say Amazon goes balls-out, Morgan Spurlock styley.
