I see the Kindle Special Offers deal the same way.
The ad is so tiny on the home screen I don't even notice it and I hate Ads and use blockers when I can on my PC. It's a thin strip really not really what I call a standard ad banner and it isn't animated. The screensavers are pretty even though it's an ad they are nice to look at. I don't miss the dead people at all!
