    with

    Is this sentence correct:

    1-"It happened with a computer."

    [There was a computer involved in this story (persumably this mistake)]

    If the same thing happened elsewhere, then it would be OK. Say, the same thing had happened to a mobile phone, then this would make sense to me.

    Thanks Tdol,

    What about if it used in this context:

    -They made a lot of mistakes in their calculations.
    -And that happened with a computer.
    (And, believe it or not, they were using a computer).
