    I found this quite hilarious, although it really goes to show just how smart people can be. Unless you have always had the dream of throwing an iPad into a fire, but couldn't afford a real one. :p

    Ha. Thats quite ironic, because jobs invented wood...

    It would be funnier if it was an Amazon Kindle though.

    I thought it was great that the people who sold it to her took the time to paint it and make it look like an iPad, when it was in a sealed box.

    Honestly, I would not have called the cops if that happened to me. I would've taken the piece of wood and smacked myself on the head with it until it broke. Don't care if it's the piece of wood that broke or my head. I would've deserved it either way.

    Block of wood is better because it doesn't need iTunes.

    If you don't, be prepared for a law suit.

    But it won't sync wireless so it's still a fail.

    Thing is, this is an age old scam and people still never learn. These days its wooden iPads, years ago it was cameras. One thought one was buying a fancy SLR camera outfit, when in fact one was buying a house brick. Scammer shows you a nice expensive looking SLR camera, but sells you a sealed camera box which has nothing but a brick inside. Same thing for stereos, portable TVs, etc.

    I thought this was hilarious when I saw it. I am a firm believer that the stupid will (and should) be punished. You have to be a real idiot for buying a cheap iPad out of a guys car in a parking lot like that :cool:

    I remember a friend of mine got taken some what like this. The guy was dressed up in a goodguys outfit and had a tv,car stereos in his trunk. The tv even had the sticker in that top corner and the other stuff was all in boxes. Lets just say my friend bought an item and got home tried to set it up and it was old and never worked. Like someone said, it is an old scam and they will dress the role as well.

    This woman wasn't satisfied with her Apple-branded block of wood. But I bet there are people out there who WOULD buy a block of wood if it were officially branded by Apple and legitimately sold as a collector's item or whatnot.

    I really don't understand why she would report it. She was trying to get over as well and got the bad end of the deal.

    I know a couple of those people too. If it was sold in an apple store they would buy the block of wood.
