Amazon Yanks Promised Thursday Sale

theodp writes "The Motley Fool cries foul on Amazon for not only bungling a promised 11 a.m. PT Thursday sale of 1,000 portable DVD players for $25, but also for blaming its customers for delaying the sale to Sunday at 8 a.m. PT. The sale was to have been the second in a weekly series. Last Thursday's sale of 1,000 Xboxes for $100 put the kibosh on Amazon's entire site, leading to some embarrassing publicity for the e-tailer that wants to run your business."
