Kindle Fire HD
Users can pay a $15 fee in order to opt out of "Special Offers"

If you find Amazon's "Special Offers" advertisements annoying on Kindle devices, fear not with your Kindle Fire HD purchase: you can opt out for $15.
 
The $15 payment in a one-time deal that will eliminate Special Offers from the lock screen and the bottom of the screen in some cases. 
 
"We know from our Kindle reader line that customers love our Special Offers and very few people choose to opt out," said Amazon. "We're happy to offer customers the choice." 
 
Amazon revealed the Kindle Fire HD last week, which comes in 7-inch, 8.9-inch or 4G LTE models. The 7-inch model will ship September 14 at $199 while the 8.9-inch model will ship November 20 for $299. For those willing to step up to the 4G LTE Fire HD, it will ship November 20 for $499 -- and don't forget the great data package that offers 250 MB of bandwidth per month, 20 GB of cloud storage space and a $10 Appstore credit all for $49.99 per year.

Um, wow, I thought that would have been fixed this time around with the faster hardware.

They either need to get their OS in line or it'll once again be hard to recommend a Fire to anyone.
