Default Typos in headlines

Probably shouldn’t jinx my new hard drive, but its package has such a howler of a typo in something like 72-point bold slab serif that it stopped me in my tracks when I saw the line of the drives on the shelf at Costco.

Here’s what it says:
Wherever you are.
Whenever you need it.
Your on.

I am not whining about the sentence fragments, btw; just that last line.
