Nokia Pureview should be renamed to Naughtyview

OK, well maybe I am late to the game on this one, but I thought I would put my two cents out into the ether.  If you are unaware of the issue, here is a quick synopsis – Nokia released a commercial highlighting the incredible image stabilization technology called Pureview embeeded into the Lumia 920.  Guy on bike filming his girlfriend.  However, just as she passes by a windowed vendor trailer, you can see the white van, door open, with filming crew shooting the scene.  Busted.  The images were not shot with the Lumia 920 using Pureview.  Naughty, naughty Nokia.  Sounds like a porn movie title.

Now you can view the slower version that makes it obvious where/how they cheated and got caught in false advertising.

Well, after getting caught, Nokia released the following apology.  http://conversations.nokia.com/2012/09/06/an-apology-is-due/

Personally, I don’t plan on buying any products from these clowns, I mean Nokia.  I believe the flow of my dollars should go to companies I believe are trustworthy and responsible.  Nokia, at least in the short term is on my shit-list, I mean Don’t Buy List.

What are you thoughts on this blatant false advertising?
