I do have fat fingers when it comes to typing, which is why I've never got on with i-Phones very well, though I do like my i-Pad.
A minor moment of obliquely related amusement on the markets yesterday when some gold data providers reported that gold prices had spiked by more than US$250/oz in a matter of moments.

Alas for holders, it turned out to be some fat fingers at work and a data glitch.
Could happen for real one day, though!
