Everybody knows that if an application has an error, you blame the operating system. Apple figured that out a while ago.

1. Order 6,214,600 Slide Brackets.

2. Yes, go ahead and let them charge $9,259,754 (plus an incidental shipping and handling fee) to your credit card.

3. Receive nine million dollars worth of Slide Brackets.

4. Dispute the charge with your credit card company. There's no way anybody would want nine million dollars worth of Slide Brackets. Must be a computer error.

5. Get the nine million dollar charge reversed.

6. Sell nine million dollars worth of Slide Brackets for a mere five or six million.

7. Profit!

8. The world is now a better place because some idiot at Slide-Brackets-R-Us will never work near a computer again as long as he lives.

Do you get those miles travelled for your frequent flyers?
If so, I'd take the 36k miles. It would get me just a little closer to actually getting a flight out of it (can't say free flight as I'd have to pay for fuel and taxes and now that is like 70% of the cost).

That sign:

Not terribly relevant to anything, but for some silly reason, I feel compelled to mention The Game, and that the sign just reminded me of it.

Somehow, though, I don't imagine the bank would just overturn a 9m dollar charge, without checking whether the company that charged it actually sent 9m dollars of its product to you first. Though I also don't imagine the company itself would actually send 9m dollars worth of its product without checking with you first, either. (Then again, stranger things have happened.)

But you don't have to return something you didn't order. Six million slide brackets. Sound to you like a genuine order? Or a computer error?

I'm not convinced of that logic, until you provide proof. If someone tried to mail a million dollars, but put the correct name but the wrong address on the envelope, assuming by some miracle it wasn't stolen while en route, I'm pretty sure it'd still be theft if you didn't make any attempt to either give it to the correct recipient or send it back whence it came from.

I'd think the same would apply if someone sent you 9m dollars of junk and you sold it, even if you -didn't- actually order it and the computer just sent it to you by mistake.

OK of course my money making scheme was a joke, otherwise I'd be doing it instead of posting about it.

But since you seem troubled, here's a brief intro to USA contract law. A contract requires an agreement between two people. They have to agree to sell, and you have to agree to buy. Otherwise you have no obligation. A seller cannot simply say "you must buy this, like it or not". Unless the seller is the government. But let's skip that for now.

If you were required to pay for or return anything anybody sent you, marketers would just send you their products instead of stuffing your mailbox with ads for the products they want to push. You'd be on the hook to pay for 100 things a day -- or pay return freight.

You really think it should or does work like that?

By that same logic, the seller could refuse to send you six million brackets, probably on the basis that either A) they don't have that many at hand; or B) they suspect someone made a mistake or is playing a joke on them. I have this feeling that if you were to really order that many brackets, a company worth dealing with would contact you to make sure this is what you want (and whether you might be able to pay).

Purchasing and returns contracts aside, I'm rather worried about the Postman. Would I be the person liable when he put his back out carrying 6 million brackets to my door or would the company? And if I decided to do the honest thing and return them, could I sue the company again for putting my back out as I lugged them to the post office? This whole bracket business is clearly a minefield, I think it's best to stick to shelf pins.

End users will blame the thing they are the most familiar with. If there is a problem with Flash on a Mac, the typical user will say "My Mac isn't working".

When the iPhone came out, Apple didn't want to risk application failures being a reflection on the iPhone, so the made quality control in their app store a priority.

Everyone is ignoring the fact that:
A. Most people don't have a $9,000,000 credit card limit, so the charge would be denied.

B. Let's say they use a debit card. Most people don't have $9,000,000 in their checking account and if they do, they probably aren't using a debit card to pay for things.

B2. If they have $9,000,000 in their checking account, they must have a lot more than that because who would be clearing out their checking account on just these parts?

WTFs just like the hotel one are common on Japanese language pages of foreign web sites (where foreign includes US). Lots of people just know that if a word in their own language has 3 unrelated meanings then Google Translate will come up with a word in the target language that has the same 3 unrelated meanings, so there's no need for a native speaker to check the results.

It's just like programming in a language that you haven't studied, and not having a code walkthrough by someone who understands that programming language.
