    Okay, so...I decided to get my mother a $79 kindle for christmas. It's not that big of a deal, really, but is there any way to disable the ads on the device? google is being dickish. Tons of bullshit links.

    I thought the whole idea of the $79 was that the ads are what made it cheaper, so I'm assuming you cannot remove them. I'm in the UK, we didn't even get an option for that at all, although in fairness, I would have probably bought the ad-free one anyway :P

    He means actual online ads not the built in ones (I think)
    And to answer that question. no

    I thought I read some where that there is an option built in so if you are willing to pay I think 30$ more amazon would remove the ads.
