Ten million hours!

Ten thousand maybe.

I would chalk this up to a typo if they just held down the 0 key too long, 10000000 or 10000, I suppose that one's eye could pass over it. However typing 10 million sounds more like a deliberate attempt to deceive the customer.

Might have had a bit of trouble finding batteries for it 1,140.77 years ago though.

 

Or does anyone expect still to be using AA cells in April 3151?

 

I would hope there was something better by then.... Smile
