the China-based electronics company, BenQ, makes LCD monitors, mp3 players, etc. They're fairly known.
their new mp3 player (limited productions, may not even make it to the states) uses an interesting marketing image:
legitimately pulled from their own site.
look at it closely. Anything look familiar? ...left side.
Now let's take a look at an image of the World Trade Center wreckage:
Did they think no one would notice where that image was pulled from? What exactly is the message?
regardless of their motive, i think that's a pretty callous move to try and use imagery from 911 to promote any product, much less something totally irrelevant. (911 sucked. Buy Our MP3 Player.)
