In a second judgement, Curry's PC World was sanctioned for spreading alarm and distress by offering for sale a 1m HDMI cable for £23.96.

Many complainants said they became upset and disoriented when they spotted the price didn't end in .99 and panicked because they felt they may have wandered into the wrong store or fallen through a wormhole into an alternative universe.

When advised that a reasonable quality 1m HDMI cable could be purchased at Poundland, many complainants expressed dismay at potentially having to fork out 1p over their ideal price point.
