ok, this doesnt really directly have to do with gear, but i thought alot of you might find this really really interesting, especially those looking for new gear funds like myself. also, i posted it in the pit and of course there are little proper replies. i hope this doesnt get closed, but sorry if this really shouldnt be here.

everyone who has ebay go right now and search for "ipod touch 32gb" and goto completed listings and sort by price highest first.

WTF. i was looking at what these things are going for because im looking to sell mine, and i have the same exact one as the first result, and it sold for ****ing 7000$+. i just pmed the seller asking if this was for real or not, it seems to be, there are like 14 bids going over thousands of dollars. then if you look at other entries, other ipods are going for hundreds and hundreds of dollars. is there some rarity or value spike for some reason i did not know about? anyone have any insight?if those posts are real and i can get alot for a damn ipod, happy new ****ing gear day to me and whoever else on here who has one i guess haha.

dont you get it? not everyone is loaded, and everyone likes gear right? anyone who has an ipod touch could potentially get alot of money out of it on ebay and then people like me and CL/\SH can get avatar cabs! i have to spread word of something like this

I don't know why you haven't just linked it yet.

http://cgi.ebay.ca/Apple-iPod-touch-2nd-Generation-32-GB-AS-IS-/260637945467?cmd=ViewItem&pt=Other_MP3_Players&hash=item3caf3b6e7b

Also it seems fake to me, if you look at the bidding history, It looks like alot of the same bidders, outbidding themselves...or in other words, a fake account owned by the seller outbidding the real bidders in order to boost the sell price.

Also after digging a little deeper, I can pretty much prove its fake

http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=260600257078 <---Exact same ipod as the previous link being sold again and only selling for $231 and if you check the sellers feedback you'll see that he received negative feedback for this Item. (Notice the Dents in the corners are the same as the $7000 auction)

So please stop posting like you've discovered a fool proof way to win the lottery. At least not until you've done your research.

i didnt know if linking would work since i guess some people are having trouble viewing all the results for some reason. but sorry if it shouldnt be here i just thought it could be a good opportunity for those of us with ipods sitting around to get some new gear you know?

People are stupid but not that stupid. NOBODY would buy an iPod touch off of eBay for thousands of dollars, when you can get them at reliable retail stores like best buy for a couple hundred... Unless it was pure ****ing gold!

The one I saw for $650 was 24 carat gold.

TS, Im sorry, but you're a dumbass.

im sorry, but youre just an asshole, that couldve been anyones mistake. i didnt say OMG FREE MONEY!!! i said potentially exciting news, because i thought i could sell an ipod for 100-150 dollars, youd be excited too if it looked like you could sell something for alot more than you thought, especially if you have alot of GAS. i posted asking if anyone had insight, i was of course skeptical form the beginning it was definitely too good to be true, but hey what do i know about ipods? i havent used mine or followed the scene for like a year at least. for all i know there couldve been a production run that was different and rare therefore worth more. i assumed the 7000 dollar one was fake, but the other ones seemed more believable at least.

Calm down dude, Okay, you can sell an iPod for a bit of cash, cool. But if we had a thread for every time this happens? And you can't expect to sell an iPod for 7000/
