Amazon Announces Kindle With “Special Offers”

I noticed this announcement from Jeff Bezos on Amazon’s home page today.  It seems that “Kindle with Special Offers” is AMZN-speak for “Kindle that will smack you with advertisements,” although I have to admit that Bezos puts a nice spin on it (click to enlarge).

They have apparently decided that the ability to market to you on your Kindle is worth at least $25 to them.

Disclosure: I love – I’m a PRIME member, and I buy everything possible on there. I don’t own $AMZN, and I don’t own a Kindle.
