Well, at least he waited until the second version came out. But what happens when iPad3 is released??
Apple lovers are known for their somewhat radical devotion to any new products the company introduces, but selling body parts to afford them is definitely something new — and scary. According to Global Times, a youngster in China’s Anhui province wanted a new iPad 2 tablet so badly he was willing to part with a kidney to be able to afford it.
The student, a 17-year-old high school student named Zheng, told a local newspaper “I wanted to buy an iPad 2 but could not afford it. A broker contacted me on the Internet and said he could help me sell one kidney for 20,000 yuan.” The “broker” was true to his word, and after the operation was completed on April 28, Zheng received his 20,000 yuan, which equates to a little over $3,000.
