This has to be the most extreme case of Apple fanboyitis in history. A 17-year old student from the Anhui province of China has sold one of his kidneys to get the money to buy an iPad 2. Apparently, the boy is now in poor health and regrets selling the kidney for an iPad 2. As it turns out there is no app to filter toxins from blood.

The boy sold the kidney for 20,000 yuan (~$3087 USD). He said, “I wanted to buy an iPad 2 but could not afford it. A broker contacted me on the Internet and said he could help me sell one kidney for 20,000 yuan.” The boy did have the kidney removed in a hospital, but as it turned out the hospital wasn’t approved to perform the procedure.

The hospital said they had no idea that the surgery was being performed. The boy was approached by a broker on the internet about selling the kidney without his parent’s knowledge. The police are looking for the broker but have been unable to find him.
