    "If the bidding process for the sad, self-immolating former tech titan were not dramatic enough, Keys threw in a bit of racial politics by dismissing rival bidder Watsa as a “crusty, old white dude.” Watsa, who is Lebanese by birth, has not commented on either Keys’ bid or her racially charged comments."

    LOL!

    Gotta love the Kevin reference too (even if they did spell his name wrong):

    "Kevin Michalick, the foremost blogger on Blackberry phones and company intrigue, seemed very pleased. “We have been fearing the worst, but in the back of my mind I think I knew that someone, maybe even Alicia [Keys] would come through,” he said."

    I thought Watsa was from Peru. Checks Google. Yup.

    Huh? He was born in Hyderabad, India, it's fairly well-know, I think.

    Idiots. What kind of a crappy outfit is this? Even for joke this is actually still a lame mistake...

    PS: they've corrected since, now it says "Watsa, who is actually Indian by birth, has not commented on either Keys bid or her racially charged comments."
