    And Apple will gladly take your money even if it is from body parts.

    Thats why Apple suck and PC would've been a lot better. He could've brought one with some blood and sperm.

    This is what's wrong with the world, people "trying" to write a post saying Apple sucks on an Apple forum. I say trying because your grammar/spelling is wrong lol! You just want to get a reaction from other members! It's quite pathetic that you waste your time doing this. Everyone has their opinion which is great, but when you have to put down another company to try and make another look better...that's just sad!

    By the way, an iPad is considered a PC by some and Apple makes PC's! LOL!

    Oh please. It's not a typo. It's an error that stops you and makes you read the sentence again to make sure you haven't missed something. Not really a question of focusing on it.
    It is a shame that this was done of course and I'm sure the poster realises that. Be melodramatic over the actual incident, sure - understandable, but over this ??

    Haha, what makes this comment even greater is that someone took it so seriously.

    The sad thing is you don't know if he's being serious or not, which is why I made that comment in the first place!

    Agreed! There's a reason we have two kidneys!

    For starters, if it was a joke...it was a really bad one that didn't even give me a grin....
    Second: apple doesn't know where people get money from.when u buy an apple product , they don't ask "hey where did you get this money and would you like an iPad case with that?"

    The kid basically had some mental issues due to being his nature/nurture environment....that and the fact that the surgeons banked in this deal...they made more money selling the organ which is sad because they didn't care about the kids health or how small the cut he was getting...(if I read correctly)

    Think different......or give a kidney!
    APPLE
    This story is about corruption, not the boy wanting a toy. Get it straight. Kids want things and think crazy just about anything is worth doing to get that toy they long for. That isn't the point. That's been the same since time immemorial. The story is about adults who know better and took advantage of and mutilated a child for personal gain. You insult this kid and denigrate his hardship with your stupidity.
    They can have my jailbreak when they pry it from my cold dead fingers.

    Why should Tim Cook pay to Save His life, Apple did nothing except their job...Market some devices to most of the world. Now that a kid who clearly had some mental issue's sold a kidney to get one of these devices and Apple should be the one to pay for it...Not only Apple but the New CEO who wasn't even the CEO when this event happened. Apple is not a hospital, A group Similar to the Red Cross will probably step and take care of this kid. He'll also probably get all the apple devices he can think of.

    This story is getting twisted around. Some of your comments make it spun like you believe he gave someone his kidney and in return they gave him some apple products. No. He sold his kidney. For money. He spent some of that money on apple products. That's it

    Also, he was seventeen. That's pretty close to being a legal adult. I'm sure if he committed a crime he would be charged is an adult. So he sold his kidney, shouldn't he have that right?

    Stupid, yeah sure. A huge risk and potentially bad for his health, I'm sure, but so is chain smoking and drinking heavily. But it's about choice. How much do we and want our governments to protect us from ourselves?

    Now, if he was mentally handicapped ( which you'd almost have to be to do this) it's a little different. I haven't seen any articles that address this so I don't know.

    i think the cause of selling his kidney was about to play the app called "amateur surgeon 2"

    seriously, i hope that apple will help that kid..

    Yes, PC venders often ask where you got your money from before they hesitantly sell you their products. Not really sure what PCs have to do with iPads, but asking you to make sense is certainly aiming way too high.
