    Well we all know that Apple fan boys love Apple products (thanks to Steve Jobs) and because of this their products are a lil more expensive (try 3x more) than competition.

    Some guy on ebay got a beta testing iPhone 4, it does not activate on AT&T network but it works just fine, here is the ebay link if you dont believe me, I feel bad for the guy but here is my idea of why its so high, LulzSec must be pulling a prank all the bidders joined today and bid it up to 1million within one hour after 100k

    First off, I don't really think this is news (more off-topic then anything), but wow.

    I was expecting something like an iPhone encrusted with jewels, gems, and plated with 24k gold, platinum, and kryptonite. Not a stupid prototype...

    That's why I just moved it. Three/two guys placing ridiculously high fake bids thinking that they're funny does not qualify as a news.

    The number has fallen drastically to a not too terribly unrealistic $1,725.

    That's why I kick anyone with zero feedback off my auctions. The listing was removed.
