Kin Kills Everything It Touches

Microsoft's biggest product disaster ever (in our opinion) is dead, but it's not forgotten. Or, at least, it wasn't for a while. Apparently some smart fellow came up with a Kin tribute site that let users memorialize the phone, the life of which only just managed to outlast the presidency of William Henry Harrison. Well, now, not only is the Kin dead, the site is apparently dead, too -- pending a new home, at least. Is there anything the Kin can't destroy?
