Something wrong with the eBay daily deals? (was Canon SD890is for $100)

We had just posted that the Canon SD890 IS was offered new in box for $100 by Tigerdirect on eBay. This was part of the four eBay daily deals and it was good theoretically until July 2nd.

When we wrote the blog post, the purchases page for this listing showed that there were 562 units available. Ten minutes later the product sold out, however there are a lot less than 562 units sold! This is not the first time we observed this "stock-count anomaly" with the eBay daily deals. Whether this is a computer-glitch or not, it is quite misleading!

For more on the camera, here are some reviews:
+ Imaging Resource
+ CNet with Lori G.

The SD890is was announced in March 2008 and it has a 10mp 1/2.33" sensor, with a 5X optical zoom lens that starts at 37mm (equivalent).

In comparison, the price at Amazon is $200 right now.
