Wal-Mart has had its fair share of money-losing glitches heading into the holiday season, and the latest is probably the best. Reuters reports that "Treadmills, which normally cost hundreds of dollars, were priced at $33.16. LCD computer monitors were offered for $9." Mostly electronics were affected and the site was down briefly yesterday while the hiccup was fixed. No word yet if those orders will be honored. [Reuters]
