Thread: White iPhone 4 Kits Bring Teen $130K & Threats

  1. #81
    I wonder how many people will buy the kit just to say they have a White iPhone and but a cover of another color over it.

    The company probably did a short run of white equipment and this guy has gotten his hands on some rejects or end of run.

    Yeah ordered from his site, both slightly defective. I even ordered one kit from iResq which was also slightly damaged.

    It seems like all these kits are rejects that are finding there way via black market to people who are willing to pay. I think thats why all these kits are so expensive.

    The best white kit I bought actually came from cnn.cn. It was the most expensive, I think almost $400 with shipping, but it was the best quality kit I seen so far.

    That's the reason, huh? The single, solitary reason? Hmmm, I'm just guessing, but wouldn't the fact that for each one of these kits sold, apple potentially loses revenue, be a more logical reason? If someone buys this kit they're not going to buy a white iPhone from apple, right?

    "Adults with Jobs" and "Kids with Jobs" and "Kids" are not all mutually exclusive categories.
    There's something of a transition involved, and not everyone succeeds with that transition.

    "Adults with Jobs" can become "Adults without Jobs" pretty easily too.
    Unless your name is Steve; some of them had Jobs from birth and will probably be stuck with them for life.

    I can't believe all the attorneys we have in here that are fluent in not only Chinese law but are knowledgeable in the contents of Apple's contract with Foxconn.

    Personally, I think someone is taking them out of the "To Be Destroyed" bin, figuring no harm, no foul, they are going to the trash anyways. Might even be someone higher up as I though Apple required them to be pretty secure with this kind of stuff, which would be why Apple is really throwing a fit. They might be able to get him to kill himself too.

    all apple is gonna do is release the white 4's in the spring so everybody thats been waitin will get one. everybody who's anybody with apple products know they upgrade the iphone's every summer (iphone 5?!?!).. when smart people like this kid have pretty much proved apple is lying with the whole "supply" thing that has supposedly been keeping them from releasin the white 4's it messes up their whole strategy.. speaking of the iphone 5.. a 3D screen maybe?

    You obviously don't read too much. The whole white iphone thing has nothing to do with supply fool. The manufacturing process is throwing up inconsistent results, meaning different shades of white being produced. So all the prototype batches had to be trashed. Someone has obviously stolen them, which makes anyone in possession of these kits, in possession of stolen goods. Understand now? The guys a fool if he thought these weren't going to bring some heat on himself. So stealing is ok? Selling stolen goods is ok? Buying stolen goods is ok? Oh, it's ok as long as it's Apple right? BTW, modding your phone with these kits voids your warranty.

    Selling stolen prototypes undermines the whole quality control Apple are so anal about. If Apple sold differing shades of white iphones, all you guys would be b1tching from here til sunday. As the saying goes, never let fools and idiots see a job half done.
