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.
