Comment Re:Act now to stop hardware counterfeiting (Score 2, Funny) 286

I work at a Satellite TV company, and I heard stories that back in "the day", about 4 or 5 years ago Q&A and development would test with production data, as there apparently was no way at the time to differentiate between test and prod accounts. So, one of the things everyone did was put the words (in big bold capital letters) "DO NOT INSTALL" on address line 2, and the full address was real, but with a fake apartment number like "#545329823098234" or something.

Apparently, one of the big reasons they ended up setting up a test system was due to money loss from installers trying to find apartment #545329823098234 on "DO NOT INSTALL" lane. :P
