Teen sells Kidney for Ipad2?!

Unbeknownst to me, selling organs virtually is commonplace in mainland China. But for an Apple Ipad 2? Really? I'd sell/trade my kidney for a  vital organ that wasn't part of a pair. Like my heart but not for a piece of technology that will outdate itself in six months. That's bad bartering and just plain crazy.

The lad, a 17 year old going by the name of Zheng, was unable to keep the secret from his mother. When he came home with the device, she demanded to know where he got the money for it. Zheng spilled the beans and now it's made world news.

Thankfully the Chinese government is making a determined effort to shut down this organ racketeering.
So trips, what would you do for an Ipad2?
