This is nothing short of hilarious. A college student was so annoyed that people would pay $300 for an HP Touchpad that’s worth $99 he decided to draw one and post it on eBay. He even wrote he was looking for someone dumb enough to buy his paper drawn touchpad. There are 6 days left to the bid and the current highest bid is an insane $90,100.
I love the fact that he describes the item as white rare. I can’t deny this is the only white HP Touchpad I have seen thus far. He’s also willing to draw an Android tablet for anyone willing to pay over $800, something he already passed by a huge margin. I personally doubt someone is going to pay 90k for an A4 paper with scribbles even if it were a millionaire.[eBay]
Update II: His bid currently has more than 130,000 hits. Everyone is copying him now drawing tablets and putting them on eBay. But no one is getting nearly as much as he has.
Update III: He just emailed me saying his auction was removed! The reason being was because he added a link to his twitter account, big mistake. Now his back to $0.99.[Link]
