You’re joking?

I shit you not. They buy the phone at $1000, comes with this gizmo, then they lose the bloody thing and come into my shop, looking for a replacement. And, most of them haven’t got a clue about electronics, so I just buy them, unbranded, off the market, put them in a new wrapper which says “iPhone compatible” on it, then sell them on.

And they cost you?

Oooh, I picked the last batch up at around 70c each.

And you sell them for?

$49.95. Plus $5 packing. But, you know, I got expenses on top. I have to get this funky packaging printed up…

  1. I love these iphone adverts where I can get the latest model for ‘only’ £35 a month on a 3 year contract. Hang on, that’s 420 x 3. Erm £1,260. That can’t be right. Can it?
