    I'd sell an iPad for a kidney, if I was short one or two of them. Besides which I'd find more use with a kidney, even outside of the body, than an Ipad.

    I'd sell nothing but a nerve for an iPad.

    No worriess he has an ipad now. it can do everytthhiiiingg. I bet it has an app to sort out his kidney problem..

    In seriousness its quite scary the extreme measures some people will go. I remember reading about a lady who had sex for world of warcraft gold. To me thats crazy aswell. If i knew this boy and he was that desperate i would of bought him an ipad myself and slapped him around the head with it and tell him to try and get on a website that uses flash. Crazy crazy kid.

    Hope his health is going to be ok.

    I think the length some people go to for Apple kit is ludicrous. People who do this sort of thing are clearly not fit to own electronic products, nor should they be allowed outside without supervision. Chinese people have their own laws anyway thanks to their moronic government but across the board, when I see people lining up outside Apple stores to get the latest iCrap I laugh. Lots. Brand loyalty is one thing but treating it like a religion is just stupidity, and in the same way people are often bitten by their faith in the mighty Jobsian empire too.

    "This is a failure of education, the first purpose of which is to 'propagate morality'," said one comment on Hong Kong's Phoenix TV website, "This teenager's stupid behaviour is a manifestation of his radically materialistic values." "To sell a kidney in order to buy consumer goods? What vanity!" added another, "It is undeniable that modern Chinese teenagers' morality is declining. This is something we must all think about."

    Apple products like the iPhone and the iPad are in huge demand in China, and are seen as a badge of wealth and sophistication by young consumers.

    lol Arthur

    Besides which you know full well the iPad he's bought is fake - there's no way you can get it with the cost of just 1 kidney, everyone knows Apple kit costs an arm and a leg.
