How do you feel about using the silk browser in light of how it routes all traffic through Amazon's cloud servers?
OldHippie 2 years ago
I'm not sure how comfortable I am with the idea that all the information about my browsing is going to go through Amazon's cloud servers if you use Silk. It seems that it will open up the likely hood of a permanent, never purged browsing history just sitting there for Amazon to analyze and examine should they ever feel so inclined. I know this is only an issue with Kindle Fire, but never the less I don't really like it. At the moment this is only theoretical, though, unless my wife takes my, "You know, I'd like to get one of those new Kindle Fires for Christmas," as a hint. I don't really plan to use it as much more than an entertainment device/e-reader in any case, but I can't just jettison my paranoia. It's like "they" say, just because you are paranoid, it doesn't mean that they aren't out to get you. And a tinfoil hat still keeps the rain off.
