- Goof (revealing mistake): The newspaper story about the lottery winner starts over again at the beginning after several paragraphs.
- Goof (factual errors): An e-mail transmission is interrupted by a satellite dish out of alignment due to a kite string's pull. The keyboard is knocked, causing the message to change by one digit from 50 volts to "950 volts." The email is then transferred incorrectly. In real life, if the text of an e-mail is altered after the send key is pressed, the email will not be altered on the recipient's end. It will either not go through at all, or the original copy will go through. This is because the interrupted signal does not get updated on the fly.
