Default Chinese boy trades kidney in exchange for iPad 2, regrets it

By Ricardo Bilton | June 2, 2011, 8:35am PDT

There are Apple fans, and then there are real Apple fans.

Count 17 year-old Chinese student “Zheng” as a member of the latter camp. Zheng is the new owner of a brand new iPad 2, which the Anhui Province resident received through the unlikeliest of means: By trading one of his own kidneys.

Both The Global Times and Shanghi Daily report the story, which begins when Zeng is contacted online by a bona fide organ broker. Zheng, clearly enticed by the notion of finally owning an iPad 2, underwent the surgery on April 28th, exchanging the extracted organ for 22,000 yuan ($3393).

Suffice it to say that Zheng’s mom wasn’t happy with the trade, and made honest maternal efforts to get the police to help retrieve her son’s irreplacable body part. No dice, of course, because the kind broker who arranged the trade was sadly also the kind of organ broker who keeps his phone in a perpetually off state.

Now, Zheng, stricken with sickness after the surgery, regrets his decision, especially after finding out that the hospital where he stayed wasn’t actually qualified to remove his kidney in the first place.

Now the question is, are there any apps for searching for kidney donors?

I hope Steve Jobs is happy now. First he ruined album sales by selling products that cost and arm and a leg.......and now kidney's. Thanks Fur!

And now our next story which is full of irony. Firstly because I received it as a notification on my iPhone (thanks Steve) and secondly Dr. Death has died.

Originally Posted by ;1550504
Jack Kevorkian, the zealous, straight-talking American doctor known as “Dr. Death” for his lifelong crusade to legalize physician-assisted suicide died on Friday at a Detroit area hospital, the Associated Press reported. He was 83 years old.
Dr. Kevorkian spent decades campaigning for the legalization of euthanasia. He served eight years in prison and was arrested numerous times for helping more than 130 patients commit suicide between 1990 and 2000, using injections, carbon monoxide and his infamous suicide machine, built from scraps for $30. Those he aided had terminal conditions such as multiple sclerosis, ALS and malignant brain tumors.
When asked in a 2010 interview by CNN’s Anderson Cooper about how it felt to take a patient’s life, Dr. Kevorkian said, “I didn’t do it to end a life. I did it to end the suffering the patient’s going through. The patient’s obviously suffering — what’s a doctor supposed to do, turn his back?”

Dying, he believed, should be an intimate and dignified process, something that many terminally ill are denied, he said.
