Amazon Crows About Record-Breaking Holiday Season With Nothing but Bezos Numbers

“Millions”, “more than” “nearly 3x”, “record holiday season” — not a real number in the bunch. I don’t doubt that Amazon had their best holiday retail year ever — I certainly contributed my share of purchases. But I can’t help but roll my eyes at their “numbers”. If you want to keep your data private, fine, but then you can’t brag about it.

(And it’s a bit sad to know Apple is heading in Amazon’s direction, with their decision to no longer report unit sale numbers.)
