It's an iPad!!!
« on: January 12, 2013, 06:30:15 AM »
Someone brought me to check a new iPad that wasn't charging. I opened the box took it to my hands and after about 30 seconds I slammed it with force to the floor. The guy went bananas for a minute or so.

 :-DD :-DD :-DD :-DD :-DD :-DD :-DD









At least the charger is somewhat safe.

That's really an iPad, just stripped of some unuseful stuff ...
Probably as powerful as the real one :D

He bought it on a highway car station (with restaurants e.t.c.), from a random guy. About 70 USD. He knew it was not an iPad. He thought though it was a real tablet with Android or something. Just an iPad imitation.

I really cant describe his face when I slammed it. I don't believe he is very upset at the end. We had a good laugh.

I'm not gonna say it's more useful than the real thing, but at least it's more useful than the real thing... I want one!

Ah, the old highway road stop con.
I had one of those once at a highway stop in England. Two guys in a car pulled up in the restaurant parking area and offered me a top brand analog watch (TAG or something) very cheap. Said they were dealers on their way back from a watch show or whatever, and had one spare they wanted to swap for "beer money".
They had mags to show you the expensive ads for the watch etc, receipts, warranty docs, the full case etc, and let me fondle it all I wanted.
The one I handled was almost certainly genuine, and that's part of the con.
The con is when you handover your money, they do a slight of hand (by virtue of "we'll put it in the box for you") and they give you the fake (which may or may not work). Once you realise you've been had, they are long gone.

Dead giveaway when they are still in their car, lined up with the freeway exit ramp  :palm:
