I gotta say that the thing I like about my Kindle newspaper is that I don't have to wade through the dreck. . .can just read the articles that interest me. I wouldn't like ads. . .but if they were there I'd not look at them, so the advertisers wouldn't get anything from me.
Ummm, yeah, not very well thought through. First he didn't even know that newspapers were available on the Kindle, and he obviously doesn't know that Whispernet can be turned off (and most people keep it turned off most of the time). Google has done it well, but that doesn't mean that everything has to be ad-supported.
Someone should go smack him up side the head with a big book. (ok, don't everybody get on my case, I'm not a violent person, I'm kidding)
There are plenty of companies who would try to make those ads work. Just think of all the spam, pop-ups, and junk mail you get. I would be very unhappy with my Kindle and with Amazon if ads started appearing.
