Why would anyone become exasperated at the thought of their privacy being needlessly threatened? The fact that Amazon collects this information without my explicit consent is already more enough to get my blood boiling.

Kindle is an e-reader. Its main advertised feature was the fact that it was perfect for reading books, not that it was great for spying on your reading and migrating habits.

What's next, an operating system that will send out all your personal information and exact geographic location out every time you try to create a new file? How about the idea of a microwave automatically sending photographs of its contents back to its manufacturer? Toilets tracking your excretory patterns, perhaps? Where exactly would you draw that line?
