Technical glitches happen.
But if you're pre-disposed to look for the worst from somebody, then everything can be a sign. Paranoia cuts deep...

Anyone who has ever owned an electronic device knows that wonky stuff happens. Sometimes, it happens a lot. The more complex the system, the more things go wrong.

It's only paranoia if they're not really out to get you.

Amazon has shown a penchant for using their buy button like a weapon in the past, so I can understand why people would jump to the conclusion they were doing so again. I'm glad to hear it was just a glitch, though.
