don't believe it's coming from a browser plug-in; netwatch sees this connection come up occasionally with just terminal running

not running Unity desktop (with Lens)

is this baked into the OS some/where/how? Keepa.Com is an Amazon Price Tracker.

Please make it clear what "v12.10 desktop (LXDE)" exactly means. Is this regular Ubuntu with LXDE added by you? If that is so, you may still have a lot of aspects of regular Ubuntu running in the background even if you run the "LXDE desktop". This is why it is better for those wanting a "lighter" experience, to start off with the appropriate distro. In this case, it would be Lubuntu (but it doesn't offer LTS if that's a concern). –  user25656 Jan 9 '13 at 1:14
This is not strictly related but you may want to look at I have permanent connections to Canonical servers, what are they for?. –  user25656 Jan 9 '13 at 1:26
