Old comic books are bought for thousands of dollars. Obviously wasn't bought to be read and thrown in thrash right?

still ugly. when do they understand, that design is obsolete and so much unused space above the screen isn't sexy, but distasteful??

> In reply to [deleted post]You guys bought a handset that doesn't even have a working antenna and accept that a cheap chinese 2 dollar bumper case is a good solution for your brand new 600 dollar phone to even work. Just becasue Apple told you to do it. And i'm the one that's dumb? Jeeez louise...

Apple's marketing team put it up, Apple's marketing team auctioned it for $999.999, all world's press talks big about it and now Apple's legal team will prevent this from getting thru and there you go Apple's marketing 101.
This is how it's done!
Free advertising FTW!

some of these comments are really stupid. It is pretty obvious that it is just some a**holes who are bidding and have no intention of buying or ayig. I mean even i could go there and place a bid for 999,999,999,999$ Not like i am gonna buy it.
