As you may recall, Amazon had a rather tactless homepage up the other day bashing the new iPad Mini. It was, of course, horribly skewed and twisted, and they have since removed it. I suppose they realized what a bad move it was to have something like that on their homepage (it even had the word "ballsy" in the quote) and so they removed it — but, if you're going to have a second wind about something like that, why do it in the first place? And if you do decide to do something like that, Amazon should have been "ballsy" enough to keep it up.
Well, either way, it turns out now that it was not only tasteless, but factually inaccurate. Amazon listed very clearly in a ("cool") chart that the Kindle Fire HD was superior because, amongst other ridiculous things, it had stereo speakers as opposed to the mono speakers found in the iPad Mini. Turns out, the iPad mini does have stereo speakers, as confirmed by Apple's own Phil Schiller.
No, actually. Not "whoops". What they did is nothing short of slander. They did not take the time to actually research what they were showing to millions of people around the world and they just posted it. Apple, in theory, can without question sue them. I doubt they will, nor do I really recommend it. But they could.
But Amazon should damn well apologize. We're all waiting.
