I think I mentioned in my first Kindle post, that I got mine on Black Friday, and it was a 'special offer' version. Well, the damnedest thing happened, it never got ads. Well, until Sunday at 1am-ish. Weird right. It's been registered to my amazon account for quite some time, and I'll hop on to the 3g connection (edge for me) from time to time. Well, it's finally downloaded the ads.

Being the smartass that I am, I figured I might be able to find the location of these ads and remove them. Kinda. I removed the file(s) that it creates trying to remove them, only to have a different ad appear. This new ad says "Connect to wireless to download special offers".

It won't download them for some reason... I was thinking it'd be kinda cool to load up some MS Paint images I made, (replace the ad images with mine) - but it hasn't happened yet.

Currently looking into kindle jailbreaks (they don't call it rooting over there for some reason...)

But still an awesome device. I love my kindle. Would purchase another one if this one was damaged or lost.
