business news in context, analysis with attitude

Yesterday, commenting on a story, I wrote:

It is also worth noting that it took 11 days to take Amazon Prime Now from green-light to launch ... which is extraordinary. It also ought to scare the hell out of anyone trying to compete with Amazon using traditional metrics.

If it actually had been 11 days, it would've been far beyond extraordinary. It would've been beyond miraculous.

It was, in fact 111 days. Still pretty damned extraordinary, but a little longer than my typo would've suggested.

Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.
