    Whoa..."Target" <http://www.target.com> has scooped the digicam media:

    Target - Fujifilm FinePix SL1000 16MP Digital Camera with 100x Optical
    Zoom - Black
    <http://www.target.com/p/fujifilm-finepix-sl1000-16mp-digital-camera-with-100x-optical-zoom-black/-/A-14493901#?lnk=sc_qi_detaillink>

    This should come as a huge surprise to everyone (Fuji, especially).

    Today (Thursday, 5-9-13), on its Web site, I contacted Target about the
    error. I received an e-mail reply, saying that "any necessary
    corrections" will be made.
