Amazon sent me an email this morning about changes to the Affiliate agreement.
“You will not, without our express prior written approval, use any Content or Special Link, or otherwise link to the Amazon Site, on or in connection with any site or application designed or intended for use with a mobile phone or other handheld device (which prohibition does not apply to any site that is not designed or intended for use with such devices but that may be accessible by such devices (e.g., on a non-mobile-optimized site via an internet browser on a tablet device)), or any television set-top box (e.g., digital video recorders, cable or satellite boxes, streaming video players, blu-ray players, or dvd players) or Internet-enabled television (e.g., GoogleTV, Sony Bravia, Panasonic Viera Cast, or Vizio Internet Apps).”
If I’m reading this correctly, this means that if we have a mobile version of the website, I can’t post buy links. So for now I have deactivated the mobile version of this site. I really hope I’m not reading this right as I wanted the site to be accessible to all who wanted to visit it at any time from anywhere. So far I’ve tested this site design out on my Android and my IPod Touch and it looks great so there shouldn’t really be any problems.
What makes things more interesting is that now Amazon has made it to where you cannot buy any Kindle books from their mobile app or their mobile site. I tried it from the full site and it worked for me but I’m hearing users are having trouble with that as well.
