This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

@roadmr Are what? It's stuff I don't want to buy. – empedokles Jul 28 '14 at 14:37
@musher Not, it's obvisiously not from Amazon as roadmr wrote. Where does the Greedystuff come from? – empedokles Jul 28 '14 at 14:38
@empedokles if you looked through that thread you'd see how to disable all of the canonical app store entries, as well. – Mitch Jul 28 '14 at 14:43
I think that that is suggestions from the Ubuntu Software centre, as to what you may wish to install. – Tim Jul 28 '14 at 14:43

Uh, those are not Amazon results but Ubuntu Software Centre results. They are not live online results - but use data obtained by updating the apt database (which you would need to do for installing software anyway). No third party is involved. To disable it, see How to remove the Ubuntu Software Center Suggestions from the Dash.
