On (first?) start the trezord.exe tries to open an Amazon IP address (serveral on failure and at various ports, e.g. 13.32.14.x:54xxx).

What is looking for there? Updates? I think it's scary. Could be used to track down Trezor users.

edit: It seems wallet.trezor.io will not start up with trezord.exe fenced. Sigh.

Why is trezord.exe trying to connect with an Amazon IP address?
