Microsoft Sorry For Tweet Cashing In On Amy Winehouse's Death

Amy Winehouse’s music isn’t my cup of tea, but yeah: too soon Microsoft, too soon. The UK Xbox PR team learned an important lesson in taste and tact overnight after a tweet encouraging people to “remember Amy Winehouse” by downloading her album at social.zune.net.

As you’d expect, many fans labelled the cash in as crass, and the Microsoft flacks quickly apologised (see below). Police still don’t know the cause of Winehouse’s passing, but aren’t treating it as suspicious. [AFP]
