Somebody goofed up before Christmas

This was posted at Designtechnica on December 1st and God knows why I have never seen it before until now :D Anyway, I thought it might worth knowing. Here it goes

A pricing mix-up on Dell's Web site has forced the PC maker to cancel some orders with Christmas right around the corner.(Sad.. :P -Ed) The Austin, Texas-based company had been offering refurbished Altec Lansing AD880 speakers, which normally sell for $229, for about a tenth of that price on its Web site. The speakers were listed on the site from Dec. 6 through Dec. 11 for $24.95, according to the company, which attributed the mistake in pricing to "human error." The enthusiastic response on the part of bargain hunters led to a quick sapping of the company's inventory, and Dell oversold the item. The company was forced to send e-mail cancellations to customers and offered a 10 percent discount on a future software or peripheral purchase. The discount expires Jan. 4. The company did fill orders at the erroneous price until stock ran out, Hilton said.
