I’ll Trade You My Kidney for Apple Products

That’s exactly what a 17-year-old boy in China did last April, according to an article published today on Wired.com. He used the money that he received for the sale of his organ to purchase an iPhone and an iPad. Talk about device envy. While the black market for organs in China has been shut down for five years, Wang had no problem finding a doctor to complete the operation.

Unfortunately, for Wang, he’s suffering the health consequences of life without a kidney. I don’t think there is an app for that. I hope you find a way to feel better soon.
