Tesco's iPad 3 pricing error: accident or strategy?

On Tuesday I received a message from a friend pointing me to an item within Tesco Direct’s website. I clicked the link and was welcomed with a 64GB iPad 3 costing only £49.99.

The person who messaged me had just completed his order and showed me the confirmation email. With that, I set off to buy two (why not?).

Within three minutes the website was down (I was on the delivery stage of the order). 20 minutes after that the site was back up and I could not proceed. I was so annoyed! I could have bought two iPads for £99.98!

An hour later the BBC had already published the story.

Please note: this is purely conspiracy theory, I am not actually accusing Tesco but merely observing a possibility...
