    The importance of closing your browser or clearing private data

    This case could either be seen as cute or maddening.

    Pipi Quinlan, New Zealand's youngest big-time online consumer.

    Sarah Quinlan, a New Zealand mom, went to take nap after having made some online bids on toys. When she came back, her 3-year-old had taken over the computer and bought a much more serious toy: a real earth mover for a cool 20,000 New Zealand dollars (about $12,300).

    [ ** Earth mover, is those digging machines used in construction sites ]

    According to Rodney Times, Pipi Quinlan was happily clicking away on the keyboard while her parent was asleep and ended up being the winner of a Kobelco digger, a gigantic earth-moving vehicle.

    Sarah had the shock of her life when she found out via e-mail which auction her account had won. She immediately called popular New Zealand auction site TradeMe, and the seller, to explain what happened. She added that her little girl was kind of a girly girl and not generally into earth movers.

    TradeMe reimbursed the seller for the successful auction, and the product was relisted.
