Amazon: no ads for mobile!

This is Amazon day: a few minutes ago I received an email notifying me of a change in Amazon’s partner program (I use referral links in post sometimes).

The new paragraph (§4c) says I must not use referral links on mobile sites without prior approval.

Huh?

In 1995, I would have understood this. In 2009, the age of the iPhone, Android and Twitter, this is just ridiculous. *any* link I put on my sites will almost certainly be accessed through mobile devices by *someone*.

I don’t get it… what are they after with this change? Any ideas?
