This should go along with the bomb-targeting device used in Afghanistan. The solder on the ground set the GPS coordinates for the bomb drop. Then he noticed the battery was low. So he swapped out the battery, then pressed the 'Fire' button.

Unfortunately, the device reset itself when he swapped the battery. It reset itself to its current position, *not* the offset position he had entered.

The soldier and 4 others died in the bomb drop.
True story -- see Software Development, November 2004.
