Chinese teen sells his kidney for an iPad 2 - Telegraph
That is quite incredible. Selling organs to buy something that 'useless'... Kidney down the drain in 1 year.
Do they now have an app to find black market kidneys?
That's just plain stupid. The kid deserves a Darwin award...
off topic i know, but I hope you can take a moment to realize how uncomfortable the western have become with the wealth the chinese are growing.
hahaha see, they will fire at the Chinese at every opportunity available to them. materialism exists everywhere. not just in the mainland. makes me wonder how would the writer twist the story if it was to happen in euroland. hehehe
the media and the consumers blame foxconn for treating its employee like pigs, yet.. how many queued up outside the Apple store on Fifth Avenue in New York the day before the new phone was launched?
2 trillion and counting.. go go go!
And iPad 2 is incredibly cheap. especially for an i product. So where's the cost savings?
Hehe.. That's the thing, isn't it? It's quite hypocritical but that's human nature for you.
If the price of Apple iPads and iPhones increase because Foxconn starts treating their workers better, people are going to complain again.
The same goes for other stuff like petrol, for example. Everyone is against drilling in the Arctic... until petrol prices hit US$ 100 per barrel. Then it's suddenly okay to drill in the Arctic!
I thought people aren't allowed to donate organs before they reach 18??
he sold it..so its alright
when ipad3 comes what he wana remove from his body? brain? but he doesnt have one
LOL!! So true!
AFAIK, it's illegal to sell your own kidney in China, and he would require his parents' permission to perform any kind of surgery. So definitely, everything he did was illegal. That's why the hospital is disavowing everything that happened.
now that is a real fanboy
Hmmmm, my wife wants an ipad2.
Ishtim: Hi, I would like to know how much I can get for my kidney.
Nurse: Hmmmn......an ipad2. I'll throw in the cover for free just for your good looks.
I think Ishtim would agree as long as you don't ask him to trade in his telescope!!
Nothing... If I'm gonna carry a tablet around I'd rather just use my iPhone
Sorry to bring a thread back to life, but I saw this as a continuation of the story
Thanks for the update! I always wondered what happened after that. Now that the new iPad is out.. I hope the boy isn't thinking of selling some other body part!
Sounds like he already sold his brain.
