Kindle Demand too much for Amazon to Keep Up With? BS

1 Feb

During the company’s fourth quarter earnings call CEO Jeff Bezos revealed that the online retailer was having trouble keeping up with demand for the Kindle.

In a clear case of hyperbole and spin,  Bezos said, “The Kindle, in terms of demand, is outpacing our expectations…It is also, on the manufacturing side, causing us to scramble. We’re working very hard to increase the number of units that we can build and supply per week, so that we can get back—our goal is to get into a situation as quickly as we can where when you order a Kindle, we ship it immediately… We are super-excited by the very strong demand.”

—Umm BS.  Do you know anyone who has one or wants one?

    It’s a conspiracy! If we don’t know anyone who wants it, no one must own one! I know no one with a Zune. That does not mean it does not exist or that it is not popular.
