        I feel for the boy who wanted something so bad but couldn't afford it so decided to sell one of his organ... but I don't think any devices are worthy enough for my organs... but would you? if you believe something is so worthy?

        Shanghai Daily reports that a 17-year-old student in Anhui Province -- identified only by his surname, Zheng -- sold his kidney to buy an iPad 2.

        According to Shanghai Daily, the boy "wanted an iPad 2 but could not afford it." However, a "broker" (aka black market organ hustler) contacted the boy online and offered to help Zheng sell his kidney for 20,000 yuan (about $3100).
        Apparently Zheng was so desperate for an iPad 2 that he agreed to the transaction, traveled to Chenzhou City in Hunan Province, and had his right kidney removed at Chenzhou No. 198 Hospital.

        He was paid his 22,000 yuan (about $3400) right after the removal.
        He then went home. His mother questioned him after he showed up with a brand-new Apple tablet, and he confessed to her that he'd sold his kidney.
        She immediately contacted the police (by the way, selling organs on the black market is totally illegal), and they opened an investigation.
        They were unable to contact the agents Zheng had worked with -- because said agents' phones were mysteriously always switched off.

        The case remains under investigation, and Zheng's health continues to deteriorate. Needless to say, Zheng now regrets selling his kidney for an iPad 2.

        Wow... I wonder where the boys parents were and if they gave him the thumbs up. 
        If he did it out of the goodness of his heart, and NOT on the black market, I would say he was a fine young man.

        Now....just another entitled kid who seems to think they can have whatever they deserve.  Had the kid never heard of a job??

        So true Rena. 

        What a sorry state of affairs this is - to sell an organ for a piece of plastic.

        I wouldn't sell my organs for anything in the world! My plan is to keep them all in case somebody close to me really needs one of them.
