Dell accidentally sells 140,000 monitors for $15 each

Dell accidentally sells 140,000 monitors for $15 eachLooks like Dell has made a rather costly mistake in Taiwan. Apparently a promotional deal went online with the wrong price of $15 for some monitors. Within eight hours, 26000 customers had ordered 140000 monitors. Ouch!

The Taiwanese regulators are making Dell fulfill the order. It’s not the customer’s fault after all. The original price of the monitors was supposed to be about $150. After Dell changed the price, 471 complaints were filed and Dell will have to use the $15 price for clients who have ordered those monitors. Dell will try to apply a deep discount to some others.

Bakery mistake results in the creation of a USB Flash Drive Cake

Bakery mistake results in the creation of a USB Flash Drive CakeWe like geek cakes ’round these parts, as evidenced by our not one, but two compilations of geek cakes. But if you want a custom cake from a bakery, you better be specific about what it is that you want. Otherwise you end up with cake fail.

So check out this funny incident. Some guy orders a custom cake and asked that a photo of a friend be integrated into the decoration. Simple enough right? So he delivers the photo as a .JPG on a Lexar Jumpdrive Trio flash drive. And look what ended up on the cake.
