I had a colleague who had invested in Webvan and decided one day to improve their chances of success in the UK by emailing the whole company and suggesting that they buy a CD or two from them. Many did, and for the rest of the afternoon we were entertained by the constant to-ing and fro-ing of the multiple couriers that Webvan sent with our orders. So, thanks to their inability to place all of our orders on one bike, my chum's ruse had directly the opposite effect of the one intended!
