Microsoft launches vapour-hardware 

This is what happens when you underestimate demand.

Speaking of which, most commentators seem to think that Carphone Warehouse's "free" broadband offer was a good business decision despite the fact that demand was underestimated and call centres are swamped. Charles Dunstone said "What has surprised us is the success of it. More people resented how much they paid for broadband than we ever imagined". Really?
