HP-01 "bargain" - Joerg Woerner - 11-27-2011

And you thought a HP-01 is expensive?

Look here.

Joerg; point taken. but since it's not RPN i don't want an 01 either.

i think that if someone paid me 40,000 bones for an old watch; i'd throw in free shipping. hell. i might even go in halvsies on the insurance.

wait a minute. was that big number in lira?

Something is fishy. Either the top two bidders know each other (how can one outbid the other one going from $300 to $40k in one swoop?) or this is a way to pay the mafia.

Since it's now at $305 instead of $40K this was obviously some biding mistake (dropped decimal point) and has been retracted.

There are a pile of cancelled bids tagged as "molesting the auction" or similar. Not just these insanely high ones either.

The last time I've seen one, it ended up with AFAIR 650 USD.

db: no more Liras since 1/1/2002
But never say never: let's wait and see; a couple more downgrades from S&P e co. and we will be back there.

or this is a way to pay the mafia

WOW Namir! Other words of wisdom? o.O

Massimo; A couple more shenanigans from the financial sector and the owner class and we may all be there.
