How far would you go to get an iPad and iPhone? Well, a kid in China sold his kidney…beat that! The 17 year old, only known as Wang, did the deal from an online chatroom. Unfortunately there’s no app to stop renal failure. The people involved, including a surgeon, got paid $35,000 while the kidneyless kid got a mere $3,500 for his troubles. His mother suspected something was up when Wang rocked up with the Apple products and was turning friggin yellow! Hmm, should have got a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, then mom wouldn’t have suspected a thing.

Whoopsie daisy. A woman in South Carolina was approached by two men outside McDonalds claiming to have cheap iPads for sale. Apparently they had purchased them in bulk and were selling them for $300. When Ashley McDowell told them she only had $180 they said that would do. You can kinda guess what happened next. Yep, when he got home she opened the FedEx box and found a lovely piece of wood painted with an Apple logo on it. Police are now looking for two black men (one with a gold tooth) driving a Impala with “no rims”.
Seems Apple are not the nice people we have come to know and love. Alasdair Allan and Pete Warden have uncovered a dastardly plot by Apple to have your every move monitored and recorded. Inside every iPhone and iPad is a tracking device which is synced and stored in iTunes. This device keeps a record of every location you have ever been to when carrying your phone or iPad. Hmm, handy for the FBI. For those who bothered to read the 15,000 word iTunes agreement it is all there in black and white ….”Apple and our partners and licensees may collect, use, and share precise location data, including the real-time geographic location of your Apple computer or device. This location data is collected anonymously in a form that does not personally identify you and is used by Apple and our partners and licensees to provide and improve location-based products and services. For example, we may share geographic location with application providers when you opt in to their location services.”
Holy crap, Armageddon was in our pocket all the time!
Hey Bearman, can you do that with your fingers? Check out what artist David Kassan can create on his iPad using the brushes app. I can’t even do that on my etch-a-sketch!
Oh for the love of stupidity, an Arizona man was arrested after he posted an ad on craigslist.com wanting to trade his Apple iPod touch and marijuana for an iPad. Dumbass even included a friggin photo of his stash. When he rocked up to do the deal, Jacob Walker was met by an undercover cop who promptly arrested him.
Psst Walker brought a mate along for the exchange and he got his sorry ass arrested too!
You know it had to happen, a feline (Iggy the cat) and a canine (Chloe the Corgi) are put to the iPad test. It just goes to show who’s the more superior beast.
