Jul 30th 2009 4:22PM Slight correction:
I was just informed that some customers *were* billed with the incorrect price. Where this did take place, we are contacting the customers to issue a refund.

Lionel Menchaca just posted a blog about the situation:
He's confirmed for me that billing occurs the day an order is shipped, so no one was billed for these cancelled orders.
Jul 30th 2009 3:02PM A lot of interesting comments. I thought I'd chime in.
While it is true there are things we can't speak to yet, we all feel it is important to speak to those we can.
Pricing errors did occur on the Taiwan site, but once those errors were discovered, they were corrected, and we began proactively reaching out to those customers whose orders were affected. A toll-free number was provided for those with questions, and discount coupons were offered to customers who had their orders cancelled.
We can't yet comment on the government actions taken, but we can say that we are working with the government of Taiwan to reach a fair resolution for all parties involved.

Get 6 people in your gang to fly bombers, fit torp launchers and a bomb launcher, add an Arazu, a couple of Falcons, a couple of Rapiers, and a Pilgrim or three, and you've got a roving powerhouse of cloaked destruction.
In a gang like that those smaller ships you see while stalking your larger prey wouldn't really be a deterrent.

Also, for those who are interested, this promo is also available on the XPS 630 systems as well. I blogged about it here:
Yes, it's true. Sometimes you can have your cake and eat it too.
