Amazon: Kindle Beats Nook
Thursday, June 30th, 2011
Amazon registers domain name flouting recent Consumer Reports rankings.
Earlier this month Consumer Reports released updated eBook reader ratings, declaring “Nook beats Kindle“.
That certainly didn’t go well with Jeff Bezos.
So the company just registered the domain name KindleBeatsNook.com.
When it comes to domain names, perhaps Consumer Reports should give Amazon a higher rating than Barnes & Noble. After all, no one (yet) has registered NookBeatsKindle.com. And no, I don’t think this is a trademark issue on a domain like this.
I’m not a fan of Consumer Reports’ ratings when it comes to newer gadgets, so I’ll stick to my Kindle…which I often times access via my iPad anyway.
KindleBeatsNook.com does not currently resolve.
