Our good friends in Applecare alerted us to the fact that Lion USB keys were now available and in stock through AppleCare.  While officially they will cost a lofty $69, it appears, at least from the wording above, that some customers that aren’t able to use Lion’s recovery tools may be eligible to receive the USB drive at no cost.

We made an effort for clarification but I don’t even think Engadget knew what they are talking about.  The full post is screenshotted below:

First of all, why not link to the original post to give your now confused readers some context?  Even if you hate some sites, it shows you hate your readers more.
