Why is a shoplifting incident at a Trader Joe's for maybe $150 worth of goods national news?

Earlier today, #Microsoft pushed a promotional message to early adopters of #Windows 11. The promo intended to promote the upcoming operating system’s integration with Microsoft Teams. Instead, it caused Explorer (the Windows desktop shell) to stop responding and left users without a working Start menu and taskbar.
