After a relatively quiet period, IS&T glitches popped up in several places.
In Japan, sales of some mobile phones made by Sony Ericsson were continued again after they had been stopped on 4 July because of software problems that could erase stored telephone numbers among other items.
A computer problem created headaches for motorists trying to renew their car registrations at the Bureau of Motor Vehicles across Indiana. It had to happen, of course, the day when many registrations expire.
A software error in cable boxes in Burbank, California shut down a cable television system for six hours which affected 35,000 customers.
A lawsuit was filed in West Virgina against telecommunication company FiberNet alleging "breach of contract, fraud and negligence, and seeks class-action status and unspecified punitive and compensatory damages." Seems that a computer problem stopped service for two days to about half of its 24,000 customers, which included hospitals, police, businesses, etc.
And my favorite, five hundred and eighty-seven patients at Northern Cochise Community Hospital in Wilcox, Arizona received inaccurate hospital bills. The new billing software decided to keep adding the bill of the previous patient onto to the next patient's bill. Someone received a bill for $49 million.
Hope that last one didn't put the person back into the hospital.
