H O A X - April 1 orig'l date The AMAZON BLAZE ANDROID PHONE? With MIRASOL? April 4 story, Not April 1

The Gadgets.Net's James Cushing reports that "Amazon is entering the smart phone business, and their entry is bound to make a stir once you get a look at “Amazon Blaze” Android phone!

WELL, that was a hoax, repeated on April 4,with no indication it was first posted on April 1, but the body of the article asked if it was for real, and the tweet said "Hoax? Real?" and I should have looked further. I'll leave this placeholder and the images but will edit out the remainder so as not to confuse readers.

  1. Steven Appenzeller,
    You already asked for feedback (a probable Amazon tablet is a popular topic for columnists this last month, by the way) and I gave you the feedback about your blog entry,
    at my reply to your request

    I couldn't find your email address on your blog, so am writing this way.


NOTE: TO AVOID SPAM being posted instantly, this blog uses the "DELAY" feature.

Am often away much of the day, and postings won't show up right away. Posts done to use referrer-links may never show up.

Usually, am online enough to release comments within a day though, so the hard-to-read match-text tests for commenting won't be needed this way.

Feedback and questions are welcome. Thanks for participating.

Technical Problems?
If you're having problems leaving a Comment, Google's blogger-help asks that you clear the '' cookies on your browser's Tools or Options menu bar and that will fix the Comment-box problems (until they have a permanent fix).

IF that doesn't work either, then UNcheck the "keep me signed in" box -- Google-help says that should allow your comment to post (it's a workaround to a current bug).
Apologies for the problems.

TIP: There's a size limit. If longer than 3500 characters or so, in a text editor, make two posts out of it.
