Feebay takes 10% in fees. As a long-time seller there, I'm over it. Plus, no guarantees it'll sell. Thru Gazelle, I just sit back and wait, then, boom, $ in Paypal.

I checked past auctions for my phone, and it ranges from $200, used, to $300 brand new. Mine is a teeny bit scuffed with a chip in the corner of the glass...$165 is fine with me!

This is the funniest thing I've ever seen.

Apple is going to ruins?

https://www.google.com/finance?client=ob&q=NASDAQ:AAPL

Since Steve Jobs' death, Apple stock has went up nearly 300 dollars per share. Current price is 665 dollars, with 937.41 MILLION shares issued. In comparison, google is 750 dollars per share.... with a measly 327 million shares issued.

MOtorolla is 50 dollars per share....
Samsung is around 1100 per share, with only 250,000 shares...
HTC is like 10 bucks, with 20 Million shares.

Apple could literally tank to half of its current stock price and still be more valuable than the remaining mobile companies.

You do realize that last year walmarts net sales was around $500 billion...? Thats one year... 2011 was $400 billion.

Maybe I am misunderstanding company? Or are you referring to sales in one year? Etc... Something isn't adding up here.

Sorry for the topic derailment!


I am waiting for the iphone 20

It's too bad sales don't mean quality or better product. Just a lot of isheep that buy Apple simply because OMG APPLE GUYZ.

Put an Apple on a turd and it'd sell.

I wasnt talking about money or value. since the new guy took sueing has been the only thing apple has been up to lately. Why bite the hand that feeds you or in this case sue the company that makes your parts. Steve knew a good company needs a good rival and that it was healthy for a company to compete and not sue them.

I actually think it's the other way around. By suing it will force other companies to come up with different technologies and not simply copy companies that create markets.

Apple wasnt the first to make a touch screen tablet. Microsoft made the first pc tablet but the world only knows of apple's Ipad. Apple have its fair share of borrowed tech. Everyone acts like Apple is first to creat everything.

No, but their the first to open markets to the masses. How many tablets were available to most folks before the ipad? The don't think the lawsuit is about touchscreen technology, it's about copying design/look. The smart phone and tablet you might be using exists only because of the mass market created by apple. So whether you dislike Apple or not for whatever reason the market exists today because of them.

apple focus more on making profit, not a good thing.

as a tech company, constantly evolve is the right way, because there are others in the same product sector.
apple's glory is it was the pioneer to develop something new, and dominate the sector, thanks to Steve Job.
Time always change, Nokia, Sony, blackberry and Palm pilot are examples, they all had their glories in the mobile device sector but now is the Apple's domination. without steve Job, and constantly evolving corporation policy, apple can be the next Nokia..
at this point I don't see what makes iphone 5 better than some other smartphones.

I dont hate apple at all. I just dont unstand why people would camp outside for a phone that hasnt changed much. I wish stop trying to ban the other phones also.
