Blocking Kindle Outgoing Data

Is anyone working on a firewall that can be put on the kindle? As I am a privacy nut. I do not believe that Amazon should know anything that I do with my kindle or what I put on it. Take care.

Welcome to MobileRead, MissileTech.

Did you not realize before you bought the K that they had access?

Probably be best just to never turn the wireless functions on then.

But in that case you might as well buy a brand of reader that doesn't have wireless at all.
