...and you think that AP had to worry about that, despite it not coming as a "press release??"

Great job, Dan. Congratulations.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

I never said it had to be a press release. I said it has to be an official Google statement.

It needs to be an official statement from Google, whether from their Press office, comms director, and so on.

And we had no idea who AP's source was. Now we do.

My point was that the fact that AP and Consumerist both posted, meant that the source was reliable, notwithstanding the absence of a press release.

And my point was while that is likely correct, Dan should wait for something official. Which turned out not long in coming.

perhaps this was mentioned upthread, but according to the ABC article, the sellers did it for $5. Is that correct? That does not seem worth the time ordering the phone, let alone all this trouble with Google.

Thoughts?

$650 x 6 in CC points and meeting minimum spend is worth more.
