i thought about this for a while, because i think it's not actually bad to do this for e.g. fraud prevention, but i think they should only do it when you log in.
if i view a product on Amazon, then i want to be treated as an anonymous web surfer, i don't want to be fingerprinted. but if i log in to buy it, then i think it's reasonable, and useful, that they try to see from what device and IP address i am logging into my account.
still, apparently they are already "eyeing" me even if i'm just visiting a public product page, and that's not very polite i think.
