Has your Ninja Specialty Coffee Maker (also referred to as the Ninja Coffee Bar System) stopped brewing coffee and continually beeped 5 times? You are not alone. Consumers across the country report that their Ninja Specialty Coffee Makers and Ninja Coffee Bar Systems have experienced the same problems.

NinjaShark advertises that you can now “[b]ring the coffeehouse home” with Ninja’s Specialty Coffee Maker. However, after only a few months to a year after purchase, these coffee makers stop brewing coffee and continually beep 5 times. Despite longstanding complaints from consumers and various forums discussing the issue, NinjaShark has not done anything to permanently address the problems. Worst of all, any attempts to fix these issues, such as running a cleaning cycle, or attempts to seek warranty coverage fail or involve additional costs.

Customers report that they contact the manufacturer to advise their costly coffee bar will not brew coffee, usually following 5 beeps, only for NinjaShark to offer little more than a discount on a new coffee bar that consumers are convinced will eventually emit the dreaded five beeps of death.

The stock market rebounded in historic fashion on March 2, 2020 after a week of losses.  The Dow Jones made its biggest point gain ever, and each of the major indices saw gains over 4 percent.  However, when the market opened on Monday, users of the popular investing app, Robinhood were unable to capitalize on the market’s big day because the brokerage firm and trading platform was inoperable for nearly the entire trading day.

Robinhood-picThe platform began experiencing problems at  9:33 AM ET—three minutes after the market open and before most of the day’s gains occurred.

Users that had planned for a market rebound were essentially stuck watching the rebound happen while being unable to execute the necessary trades.  Other investors have posted pictures of their losses, some totaling as much as $500,000.  Some traders, such as those holding options positions, as well as those holding long volatility products, suffered enormous losses that day because they were not able to trade and their positions essentially rotted on a broken platform.

Not-So-Waterproof Samsung Phones

Samsung-300x200
Do you or did you own a Samsung S10e, S10, S10 Plus, S9, S9 Plus, S8, S8 Plus, S7, S7 Edge, Note 9, Note 8, Note 7, A8, A7, and A5, manufactured between 2016 and 2019? Was it advertised as “waterproof”—featuring advertisements where people jumped in pools or oceans with their Samsung phones? Did these advertisements not hold water (pardon the pun)? Don’t worry—you’re not alone!

Thousands of other Samsung phone owners across the country have been experiencing the same problems. Indeed, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission recently filed a lawsuit against Samsung, and the ACCC Chairman Rod Sims stated that, “Samsung’s advertisements falsely and misleadingly represented Galaxy phones would be suitable for use in, or for exposure to, all types of water … when this is not the case.”
