If you own Microsoft stock, at one point today you probably could have been a millionaire! A glitch today with the NASDAQ market showed that stocks were selling at $100,000. The screenshot below is from Yahoo Financial which still hasn’t corrected the day’s range.

Also interesting is that several sites are reporting that a computer glitch triggered the sudden plunge in the Dow Jones yesterday which is why  it ended as the worse day since the first day of trading after the September 11th attacks.

They realized that their computer system was not handling the massive amount of trading the way it should have been, so in late afternoon they switched over to a backup system.

And as you can imagine, all the jokes are flying around like “did they just upgrade to Vista?”
