News you may have missed…

wall-eThe Weekly World News — one of this planet’s most valuable news sources — is reporting that some poor guy was charged $62,000 to download a copy of Wall-E using his 3G wireless connection.

The kind, unsuspecting uncle, Alberto, was travelling in Mexico.

His nephew wanted to see the Disney movie so he obliged. He had no idea how much the download time — over and above the actual rental fee — might cost him.

Obviously he complained to his cell phone carrier when he saw the $62K invoice.

They were magnanimous in their response and reduced the fee. They’re now charging him just what they say it actually costs them for the wireless download bandwidth time.

Alberto’s new bill is $17,000.
