With "higher" position (here meaning being more famous, more "known" to the people) comes a higher responsibility. Two persons can say exactly the same sentence, but the meaning (and importance, the "weight") of it relies on who they are, what have they accomplished so far.
Amazon had people who trusted them so much... and those felt disappointed. Yes, you can blame the people for believing, but Amazon will take the damage of disappointing them.
I always thought Barnes and Noble were really big in the US. I guess not then. I will have to see the device in the flesh to pass judgement but from all the videos/pics I've seen the PW was acceptable to me. The Nook glow looked much worse in comparison. However my eye sight is not the best and I never really had a problem with the kindle lighted cases either
