Amazon Punks Us

I’m sure we’ve all seen or heard of Amazon’s last-minute Christmas “present”: ADS!

They are coming to Prime on January 29th, unless you pay the ransom of $2.99 a month to be spared the irritating pitches from Lily from AT&T, the Geico Gekko, the perky Toyota lady and all their tiresome siblings.

Well, it is what it is: an opportunity to make money from a captive audience—us!

It'd be worth the extra money if they just gave us the option to turn off the goddamn "also on Prime!" or "Next episode!" pop-ups in the end credits of movies and shows. THE worst thing about the streaming "revolution", bar none. Imagine on-screen text during the end credits of an emotionally-draining movie in a theater reminding you of all of the concession stand and gift card options available before you leave.
