I checked out hackaday tonight, and saw a reference to something about a $50 iBook, linked to this page, with a quite funny Tshirt.

You can buy one on eBay here, or a different style here.

Anyway, the gist of it is, that a school sold off some old (4 year old) ibooks, and about 5500 people turned up, and it was (as someone said) an "iMob", which I found quite humerous.

There's a more indepth description of it here, and here.

Anyway, the reason for this post, was just to point out some of the funnier stuff I found related to this, like some of the iBooks listed on eBay, here, here, and here.

I love the question on the first one.. "Did you run over an old lady or a baby to get this computer to sell on ebay. Wow you must be really proud of yourself."

Ah, that cracks me up.

A couple of comments I've read on other sites..

"...and all this chaos and panic over 4 year old laptops. Imagine if they were told Aliens just landed with Jesus on board and bigfoot was the pilot. It's always nice to see the human race as rational and level headed as usual."

"I'm sure all of those $50 ibooks are going to be used by deserving students. Get a fucking clue... Look at the picture again. The dude on the far right really looks like he is concerned about his education! Looks to me more like "oh cheap shit I want my stuff!!! " "


Ahh, it's too funny.
