How to Remove Ads from your Kindle without any Hacks

The Kindle reader starts at $89 but you get a $20 discount if you opt for the Kindle with Special Offers. The two models look alike and have the same set of features except that Kindle with Special Offers model will display sponsored ads on the home screen when idle.


The ads on the Kindle with Special Offers edition are unobtrusive but Amazon does offer an option to remove ads from the sponsored Kindle for a $20 fee. Go to your Kindle dashboard on Amazon.com, click the Manage your Devices link, select your registered Kindle device and click Edit next to the Special Offers link.

Disable Ads on Kindle with Special Offers


There’s another easier option as well that will let you remove ads from your Kindle for free.


You can contact the Amazon support team and request them to disable advertising on your Kindle with Special Offers. They are likely to oblige if you using a Kindle outside the USA since special offers cannot be claimed in other countries.


Here are the steps involved:



  1. Open the Contact Us page on Amazon and select your Kindle device from the list.

  2. Under the Issues section, select Kindle Device -> Kindle with Special Offers -> Problems claiming offers.

  3. Select the Chat option and here you can request the Amazon representative to disable ads on your Kindle device.


You’ll get a notification on your Kindle device (see screenshot) once the sponsored offers have been turned off. Restart your Kindle and the ads should no longer appear on the device.


I tried this on my Kindle and the ads were gone in 5 minutes. The trick, which also applies to the Kindle Paperwhite and Kindle Fire tablets, was originally shared on Reddit but has been pulled down by the submitter.

How to Get SMS Alerts for Gmail via Twitter

How do you get SMS notifications on your mobile phone for important emails in your Gmail? Google doesn’t support text notifications for their email service but Twitter does. If we can figure out a way to connect our Twitter and Gmail accounts, the Gmail notifications can arrive as text on our mobile via Twitter. Let me explain:Twitter allows you to follow any @user via a simple SMS. They provide short codes for all countries (see list) and if you text FOLLOW to this shortcode following by the  username, any tweets from that user will arrive in your phone as text notifications. For instance, if you are in the US, you can tweet FOLLOW labnol to 40404 to get my tweets as text messages. Similarly, users in India can text FOLLOW labnol to 9248948837 to get the tweets via SMS.The short code service of Twitter can act as a Gmail SMS notifier. You create a new Twitter account, set the privacy to private and this account will send a tweet when you get a new email in Gmail. Follow this account …

Instagram Story links get 15-25% swipe-through rates for brands, publishers

Instagram may arrived late as a traffic source for brands and publishers, but it’s already showing early signs of success, driving new visitors to their sites and even outperforming its parent company, Facebook.For years brands, publishers and other have tried to push people from the Facebook-owned photo-and-video-sharing app to their sites. Outside of ads and excepting a recent test with some retailers, Instagram didn’t offer much help to companies looking to use it to drive traffic. So they had to find workarounds. They put links in their Instagram bios. They scrawled short-code URLs onto their pictures. And they typed out links in their captions.Then last month Instagram finally introduced an official alternative to these hacky workarounds: the ability for verified profiles to insert links in their Instagram Stories.Almost a month after the launch, 15% to 25% of the people who see a link in an Instagram Story are swiping on it, according to a handful of brands and publishers that h…
