    Not much?

    Well, it's worth over £200 and counting to the idiots bidding on this.

    Notice, in the large body of text, it states:

    Just had to share this, it was too funny not to :p

    Wonder how long til that gets pulled down.

    I'm all for "buyer beware", but to hide those three "CYA" sentences in the middle of a HUGE paragraph of specs is crap. Or utter tosh, or however you say it over there.

    Up to £300 now. I think the winning bidder is going to be very annoyed. Unless they did actually want to buy a printed iPad version for some reason

    Maybe a few people should click on report this listing. The more that do it more likely it'll be pulled.

    That is one of the most misleading ads I have ever seen. It has been reported to eBay.

    I was doing that right as you posted. great minds think alike!

    I reported it, yeah call me whatever, but the person shouldn't be allowed to get away with it. Otherwise eBay will be swamped with garbage like that.

    Edit: Genius? Hardly, good way to get booted of eBay, that's about it. Do you think the person who wins it is not going to kick up a storm? Hope they pay through pay pal so they can lock the payment for a refund.

    Old Ebay used to display bidder names, which although we open to abuse was handy to contact a bidder to tell them they're being scammed.

    Anyway, we've done our bit. Hopefully Ebay will do there's now.

    Stuff like this has been going on since ebay started. I remember a few years ago someone "won" an auction for a PS2 @ $600 USD... which was nothing more than an empty box that once HAD a PS2 in it.

    I was bidding on this auction. Why did you all have to go and get it removed?!

    Now I'll have to go through all the trouble and expense of printing a picture of an iPad myself.

    ;)

    I have also seen auctions that are just ads for "How to get a free iPad!" that involves subscribing to a bunch of magazines and services and... posting fake eBay auctions advertising how to get a free iPad. Seller said all bids would be considered donations. Last I saw, it was over $500 US.

    Presumably you could have paid with an image of your credit card printed on a piece of paper.

    Tell you what, for a small fee I'll print a picture if an iPad for you. For a small upcharge, I'll print it from my iPad running 4.2 beta. :D
