Okay, yeah, now we're in baseless nonsensical conspiracy theory territory now.

I'm no PayPal shill, I just don't care about anything but the article itself DIRECTLY.

In the Macrumors version of this story he says he thinks it was iTunes that caused the overcharging, when he used the redownload all apps feature.

And then he admits he was using an iTunes beta downloaded from the Apple dev site! I for one would not do any account related activities with a beta.

Wonder how that effects the amount of copies Apple claims to have sold of Lion on the first day?

PayPal is a great site, I've used it since it came into existence over 10 years ago. Never had a problem.

You have to realize 2 things about PayPal:

1.) NEVER set up auto-anything on PayPal. If there isn't enough money in your PayPal account for the transaction, then the transaction gets declined. I still have my bank account on file with PayPal, but I pull the trigger. It is NOT set up for back-up funding. Nothing is.

2.) The PayPal CREDIT card is a piece of rip-off trash. However, the PayPal DEBIT card is an excellent product that I use all the time, enjoy receiving cash back on and have even used to rent cars. As a business Mastercard it offers free purchase protection, roadside assistance, rental car insurance, etc.

To recap: do not set up Backup funding on your PayPal debit card and do not activate the Balance Manager.

PayPal is a great site, but you have to know how to use it and not use it.

Paypal is just full of so many holes. I've personally been hacked 3 times. I've never had a credit card issue....ever.

So I closed my Paypal account. Just don't trust them...

Let others analyze PayPal in this, but ...

.

Please ...

Was this with iTunes or App Store ?

Are they the 'same' or 'different' - what are 'differences/etc' ?

THAT is the part has my curiosity, and suspect is the 'culprit'

And NO ONE is looking at it, nor addressing it (not that I've found)

Will get back later with more questions and details

If some glitch causes such a major inconvenience to a client, for no fault of his, then it stands to reason that the erring party does something extra to compensate the client. Why is that surprising?

That sure has not stopped all the "experts" who visit here from voicing their opinions as if they are fact.

Apple sells computers to anyone, including the clueless.

The only thing missing is some comments from Android fan bois who feel compelled to visit this site focused on products from a company they hate.

really? I loved my iphone - loved lion. I got shafted by apple. yes, paypal, for the most part has the money, and did nothing to shut down apple customers from being crapped on once again...but this is apples baby. I am not a fan of andriod, but I chucked my iPhone in the trash, refuse to use my wifes mac, and picked up an andriod phone. I'll get used to it. Fanboy? Really? - whos the fan boy? It's so obvious that you are the clueless expert here.

Anybody here got like $2 in PayPal dollars about five years ago after the class action lawsuit?
