Responding to Mario's comments in #118:
"And what are you talking about 'a new user who has yet to learn to use the terminal to remove the shopping lens'? There is a switch in Privacy settings now."
The new privacy settings switch as currently implemented is a poor workaround because it's all-or-nothing. It disables all Internet searches across the entire Dash, whereas removing the shopping lens package (currently) disables only the unwanted Internet search -- the one that from the standpoint of privacy is more accurately characterized as "the Amazon Home lens keylogger".
