A man in the U.S. has 'bought' an item on Amazon with a price tag of nearly three billion dollars - just to see what would happen.

Brian Klug spotted the copy of the Discovery Channel's 'Cells' CD-ROM for sale at $2,904,980,000 (£1,800,979,540).

Out of sheer curiosity, convinced the price tag was a mistake, he put in his credit card details to buy it and stepped back to see what would happen next.

First off, Mr Klug from San Mateo, California, was charged $3.99 for posting and handling.

He missed out on a saving of $29,000,000 - there's a copy on the Amazon marketplace now for $2,875,934,133.57.

Maybe it was one of those CDs like they sell on ebay that says something like, 'Buy this CD to learn how to get rich on ebay!'. He figured he would make his money back ^_^

Slow and boring news day if an article is written about some guy who wanted to see what would happen if he'd buy a copy of Windows 98 for three billion dollars. Hah. Oh well.
