"still dead so it is now here"

The advertising:

“the iPhone 4 is thin as a rake but the front and back are 30 times stronger than the usual plastic. Reason – aluminosilicate glass, the stuff that windshields of military choppers are made of.”

The reality:

“1x iphone 4 16 gig in nice cosmetic condition. this item was dropped in the sink in water removed within seconds but damage was done”

So, if you ever find you need to quickly disable a military chopper*, quickly dunk it in a bowl of water.

“i cannot check iemi, the sim holder is missing.”

Are the sim holders soluble then? Seems an odd design feature.
And as for the iPad;

“1X IPAD 2,16 GIG WI.FI 3G please study pictures of this item, it was dropped face down and front is a mess. touch is smashed.screen is smashed,”

So. It’s all smashed then?

“back is not damaged in anyway”

Oh, that’s ok then. Obviously they make the backs of ipads out of military chopper windshields, but not the fronts.

“power button is intact,when powered on item is on for approx 10 seconds then powers of,then on again and process is repeated.”

If it could display “Just let me die”, it would.

    I think it’s already had a pretty good go at committing suicide. Looks like a 20 foot or bigger drop into that “sink in water”.

    £378.51? Plus £7 delivery, don’t forget.
    Some people shouldn’t be allowed nice things.
    And in this case, that appears to have happened.
    For the buyer, at least.

    They sold for over £350 !?
    What!? How!? Why!?
    I was quite enjoying your site, laughing at your humorous comments, but now I feel a bit sad.
    Please tell me you make up all these listings and create hundreds of fake accounts to bid on said made up itemsin order to have this blog.
    I know that sounds like a lot of effort but the alternative (the buyers and sellers are genuine ) is really concerning!
    I sold a perfectly good tv/video combi for £1, obviously I should have smashed it or dropped it in water to ensure it wasn’t working, in order to release it’s true value.
