Who are these stupid people? Seriously… I really would love to meet each and every one of the insane people who are bidding on an “Apple iPhone 4 black APPLE GENUINE PROTOTYPE, TESTER” device on eBay. I want to meet them in real life, not to even ask them why. I don’t care what they have to say… I simply wish to place my palm to their face at a high vilocity. Call me crazy, but the erge is overpowering.
People often sell strange things on eBay for large sums of money, and many times they are collectable items that will retain their value for years to come. Sometimes, on rare occasion, they are future devices that have been discovered, or brand new items that were purchased in bulk when they are all sold out every where else. In those situations… it’s understandable. This… I just don’t get it.
The iPhone 4 has been out for over a year now, and this auction has a “Prototype” model that doesn’t even work for usage (says “for parts or not working” on the listing). The auction, as of the time of this article… is a WHOPPING
$70,100 $100,000! These people are barking mad!
The even more impressive thing is… it doesn’t just have a couple bids either. It’s at 74 bids already, and the auction currently has SEVEN DAYS REMAINING in the auction (as of July 4, 2011 at 2:00am EST). You can click the link below the screenshot to keep up to date on this rediculousness…
Share this article with your friends, using the buttons to the left. This auction could easily, at this point, be the biggest online event in MONTHS! :D
UPDATED: The listing has been ENDED with no winner. Obviously, due to the listing reaching an unimaginable $999,999.01 price, nobody was really taken seriously.
