Webvan Auction Idiots

from the paying-more-than-retail dept

A friend of mine woke me up early this morning telling me that I should go to the Webvan auction. It is right down the street, but I had too much work to do and wasn’t really that interested in what Webvan had for sale. However, it appears that many more people than were expected showed up to bid for their piece of history. Many of the bidders appeared to be complete idiots who clearly overpaid for stuff. Some even paid more than they would have had they bought the same items brand new. The San Jose Mercury News has more info on what was for sale and what people paid. The auction continues tomorrow, but I’ll be spending my time handing out candy to neighborhood children and hoping that the @Home installer knows what s/he is doing.
