Releasing 60 million genetically modified mosquitoes a week sounds just wrong, but in theory the mutant mosquitoes will mate with normal mosquitos so the offspring will have a genetic flaw that causes them to die quickly. There is no mention of whether or not the millions of mutant mosquitoes to be released weekly will feed on the people of Brazil. If that\u2019s not just wrong, then the three examples below surely are.Saddam Hussein\u2026really Apple?Apple refused to issue a male customer a refund for an iPhone 7 unless he could prove he was not Saddam Hussein \u2013 you know, the Iraqi dictator executed by hanging in 2006 \u2013 basically a decade ago. Apparently, someone working for Apple was unaware of that fact.The UK customer was 26-year-old Sharakat Hussain, not Hussein. The Sun reported that when he returned the iPhone 7 to the Apple Store in Birmingham, he was told the refund would be by bank transfer. Weeks go by and no refund.After calling Apple, he received an email which he thought was spam. \u201cA bungling admin worker had claimed he could be on a \u2018Government Denied Parties list\u2019 of people they are legally forbidden to sell to.\u201dHussain was supposed to check a box to confirm he wasn\u2019t the Iraqi madman. Hussain was \u201cstunned\u201d to learn the email was real as well as \u201cfurious\u201d for \u201cbeing linked to Saddam.\u201dAn Apple spokesperson told The Independent: \u201cWe offer our sincerest apologies to Mr. Hussain. Though we are required to check identity while processing a refund, the letter he received was an error and should not have been sent.\u201d Apple is working on getting a refund to Hussain.Copyright cops threaten 86-yr-old Canadian for allegedly pirating zombie-killing gameYou may not have heard Canadian Christine McMillan, but her story about copyright cops is all too familiar. She received an email informing her that she was liable for a fine of up to $5,000 for illegally downloading Metro 2033, a first-person shooter game set in Moscow following a nuclear war. Yet the 86-year-old grandma had never even heard of the game.McMillan told CBC\u2019s Go Public, \u201cI found it quite shocking \u2026 I'm 86 years old, no one has access to my computer but me, why would I download a war game?\u201d She added, \u201cThey didn\u2019t tell me how much I owed, they only told me that if I didn\u2019t comply, I would be liable for a fine of up to $5,000 and I could pay immediately by entering my credit card number.\u201dHer ISP had forwarded two threatening infringement emails from Canadian Intellectual Property Rights Enforcement (CANIPRE) as is required by the Copyright Modernization Act. CANIPIRE\u2019s owner Barry Logan claimed he gets \u201c400 calls and emails from people on a busy day and \u2018most of them\u2019 settle.\u201d In fact, CANIPIRE has collected roughly $500,000 over the last two years by being a copyright cop.A network security analyst suggested that granny used an unsecured wireless connection in her apartment and someone jumped on it and downloaded the game using her IP.McMillan said, \u201cThat somebody can threaten you over the internet \u2026 that to me is intimidation and I can't believe the government would support such action.\u201d She intends to ignore the infringement notices and not pay the piracy ransom for a game about shooting zombies in post-nuclear Moscow.Casino offers steak dinner instead of paying $42.9 million slot machine winWinning nearly $43 million dollars on a slot machine, the largest payout on a slot machine in the US, only to be told later that the machine was malfunctioning and the most you won is a steak dinner\u2026that\u2019s just wrong.ABC7NY showed a photo of Katrina Bookman next to the Sphinx slot machine at the Resort World Casino in Queens, New York City; the screen shows that she won $42,949,672.76.In the midst of the excitement, security escorted Bookman from the floor. Machines at the casino have a small label warning, \u201cMalfunction voids all pays and plays;\u201d the casino claimed her win was actually a machine malfunction since the max payout on the machine is $6,500. She was told to return the next day for the casino\u2019s decision regarding her win.The next day, when she returned and asked about her winnings, a casino representative said, \u201cYou didn\u2019t win nothing.\u201d Instead of almost $43 million, the casino offered her a free steak dinner.Her attorney, Alan Ripka, said, \u201cThe machine takes your money when you lose. It ought to pay it when you win.\u201dThe New York State Gaming Commission fixed the broken slot machine, saying the most Bookman is entitled to is $2.25. Glitch or not, Bookman and her lawyer believe she is entitled to at least the max payout of $6,500.
