Amazon shorting its TomTom stock?
A one-day, sale the retailer is holding for the TomTom One-S GPS device is likely completely unrelated to Microsoft's patent suit, but the timing is interesting.
I woke up this morning to a special deal from Amazon.com on a TomTom GPS device. While its one-day, 33 percent discount almost certainly has nothing to do withfor eight counts of patent infringement, the appearance of Amazon trying to clear its inventory of the TomTom One-S couldn't have better comic timing:
I don't want to prey upon TomTom's misfortunes, however. I'm going to be waiting for the "75 percent off" sale next week. :-)
