Amazon trying to put iTunes out of business…

28 May

Operative word: TRYING…. last week Amazon offered Lady Gaga’s Born This Way album for 99cents to try steal some of Apples iTunes customers…  Great idea! Great way to boost popularity… poor way of MAKING money and poor execution. Customers flooded Amazon to buy the artist’s album and Amazon couldnt deliver… Supposedly they had a “backlog in the system”… (side eye)

They said they were “experiencing very high volume” (via twitter)… Dont fret! They made sure they offered the deal again on Thursday to make up for the incidenet.

For amazon to be an internet business, I’m a little disappointed they weren’t more prepared. But then again, who knew a lady who wore MEAT dresses were SO popular… go figure…
