Amazon sells 17 Wiis per second

Best year ever (!) for Amazon.com.

Amazon.com, Inc. today announced the 2007 holiday season finished as its best ever, with its busiest day being December 10. On that day, Amazon customers ordered more than 5.4 million items, which is 62.5 items per second. In addition, the company wrapped up its second year of Amazon Customers Vote, with more than 4.6 million votes cast during the promotion.

"We are very grateful to our customers," said Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of Amazon.com. "On behalf of Amazon.com employees around the globe, we wish everyone happy holidays and best wishes for 2008."

The press release said "Amazon.com sold Nintendo Wii systems at approximately 17 per second when they were in stock."  How many minutes was that, we wonder?
