If you cannot afford one, don't buy it... Your life is much more important than the others...
Just because your friends has one doesn't mean you need to obligate the trend... Don't be like them, don't be a spoilt brat, be yourselves, and make your mama proud :D

if you buy an already outdated ipad2 with ur kidney, and risked dying, it shows the level of intelligence of this particular youth. No matter how "cool" something is, is it worth risking ur life for it? If he had died, who would have played with the ipad, his corpse??

This would have been a much better news if Apple had compensated all the expenses they boy had lost, mind you there's no price to what he has lost.
And the surgeons...they should be sentenced to HELL!!

iPads can be replaced your kidney can't.. Although we have 2 of them, having only one means overload in it's workload.. I can't believe he done that just for an over priced piece of junk. This applies too to other devices though not junk as Apple products but still not worth it to exchange your kidney.

Old news. In China there are alot peoples selling theirs own "body parts" for money. Not only for buying a Ipad.

this whole story probably gave apple an idea for a financing plan for their macs, iphones, and ipads.

people sell their lungs for cigarettes but no one seems to think that's wrong.
You could probably live longer with one kidney than lungs full of tar, so I think this is an injustice
