This should help de-Amazon your Ubuntu.

1. Ubuntu Settings --> Privacy -->Include online results [OFF]

2. sudo apt-get remove unity-lens-shopping unity-scope-video-remote unity-scope-musicstores unity-webapps-service

3. Launch dconf-editor, navigate to: com -> canonical -> unity -> webapps, and then remove everything under allowed-domains, dontask-domains and preauthorized-domains
