business news in context, analysis with attitude

USA Today reports that some of the nation's growing number of self-checkout machines are having problems reading the new, peach-colored $20 bill - sometimes actually eating the bill without giving the consumer any credit.

ATMs have been properly programmed, and are not having the same issue.

The reports suggest that this is not a consistent problem, and that all the nation's self-checkout machines should be working correctly in a week or so.
