Amazon’s Kindle: Some Interesting Security Thoughts

I didn’t expect that my newly received Kindle would know I bought it.

It’s already called “Susan’s Kindle”, it’s hooked to my Amazon account and recommends a combo of security books and “chick flick” books.

Kinda cool but kinda creepy that it already knows who I am and what I read because it’s prelinked to my Amazon account.

So I gotta ask.. is there a password on here or is there some other magic mumbo jumbo under the hood?
