Markey concerned about privacy on Amazon’s Kindle Silk browser

John Moe Oct 17, 2011

Rep. Ed Markey (D-MA) kind of reminds me of a book of Mad Libs sometimes. He’s always firing off STRONGLY WORDED LETTERS to tech companies about privacy concerns stemming from some new innovation. All you have to do is fill in the name of the company, the name of the product, whether it’s a device or a web service, and the day the letter was sent.

For instance:

Rep. Ed Markey fired off a STRONGLY WORDED LETTER to Amazon on Friday over privacy concerns related to the Kindle Fire, specifically the Silk browser on the device. He wants more information. He always wants more information.
