    9to5Mac report that Apple's Beijing store has stopped sales of the iPhone 4S after fights broke out between scalpers.

    "Breaking out of Beijing right now, the flagship Apple Store has halted selling the iPhone 4S, after a fight has broken out between scalpers. Beijing’s SWAT team is on the scene to help tame the rowdy lines. Bloomberg says the store is being pelted with eggs by the angry crowd".

    The Chinese sure do like their iDevices... I heard a boy in china sold one of his kidneys so he could afford an iPad!

    Some girl was willing to have sex with an unknown person for an iPhone.

    the thing that makes iPad/iPhone great are the apps out there. I know many people who spend a fortune on an iPad but refuse to spend a few bucks on apps that actually make the iPad useful. iPad is just a means to an end (apps). If all you're doing is just basic web surfing, any tablet out there should suffice...

    As long as the girl is using protection and near the age range of this unknown person, I don't see anything wrong with this.

    Why does age range matter? I mean as long as the two persons are both of legal age, and we are essentially condoning prostitution with an iPhone as form of payment, should age REALLY be the factor that we worry about?
