Diamond ‘Mistakenly’ Prints THX Logo on 3850 Box

How this happened is a bit of a mystery, but Diamond, a company best known for manufacturing ATI Radeon graphics cards, somehow managed to print the THX logo on its HD 3850 packaging – despite the fact that none of the company’s products have ever featured the technology. Diamond simply puts it down to a mistake by a former employee, so if you see a Diamond 3850 in BestBuy which claims to come equipped with THX, don’t get too excited. The company posted a statement online saying:
It came to our attention that the “THX” logo mistakenly has been printed on 3850 box. This mistake happened as result of misunderstanding of former employee. This is to confirm that this product and or any other Diamond’s products have ever supported “THX”. This mistake has been corrected.
So which other companies are advertising features that they don’t actually offer?!Source: Diamond
