Submission + - I'm Too Sex-ty for My Kin 1

theodp writes: Microsoft's Kin mobile phone project came under fire as Consumer Reports and others pointed out that a promotional video looked like an inappropriate endorsement of 'sexting', prompting a quick edit and apologetic tweet. 'The video,' observed Consumer Reports, 'includes a downright creepy sequence [@0:33] in which a young man is shown putting a Kin under his shirt and apparently snapping a picture of one of his naked breasts. The breast is then shown on the phone's screen, just before the guy apparently sends it to someone. Next we see the face of a young woman, seemingly the recipient, with an amused expression on her face.' Hey, it could have been worse!
