Microsoft UK PR landed in some hot water by posting this shamelessly opportunistic tweet in the wake of Amy Winehouse's death — which makes you wonder who put them in charge of PR. It's pretty awful, but we're far more offended by the assumption that there are still Zunes out there that aren't buried 80 feet deep in a landfill. The company later offered an uncomfortable-sounding apology in which they claimed their previous tweet was not "commercially motivated." Considering it applied to Zune owners, we're inclined to believe them.
