    iPhones on Ebay

    Crazy when you can just order on Apple.com for the retail price...

    They won't--they probably haven't bought them yet, and will do so over the weekend.

    Some poeple are stupid enough to buy them not knowing the Apple's inventory. But, i bet they will make some money selling the phones abroad to UK etc... i.e. if the hackers manage to get through the activation process.

    Good luck!

    Scalpers are almost always interesting, even in real life, watching people scalping tickets is sometimes hilarious.

    Many forms of social nuisance are amusing. That doesn't make them any less of a nuisance.

    I find it funny that something like people buying multiple iphones or playstation 3s to sell on ebay for a profit pisses so many people off, but those same people have no problem wearing apparel manufatured by underpaid, exploited human beings.

    Priorities people.:rolleyes:

    something is fishy about that. The first bid was $12000. Why would the bidder do that when there are several "Buy it now" auctions up for a bit over 1000?

    My wife started getting calls tonight from all her friends (we're talking 50 year olds here, okay?)...

    And they'd all gone out and bought two or three (!) iPhones each, just to sell on eBay and make a profit.

    Nice old ladies... ha!

    Please no one buy them.

    Don't encourage them.

    There will be plenty available, even if you have to wait a few weeks.
