    Warning: Do Not Buy Your iPad At McDonalds!

    Friendly warning: The iPad is not one of the items available on the McDonalds' value menu. Ashley McDowell, from Spartanburg, S.C. learned this the hard way after she bought a wooden iPad from a man with a gold tooth. McDowell was tempted by the man who was offering a discounted iPad for $300 in a McDonalds' parking lot, but unfortunately she wasn't carrying $300 that day. Not wanting to lose the sale, the thoughtful salesman offered her a generous discount and sold her the device for what she had in her pocket -- $180. Since he was so nice, McDowell didn't check the box before making the deal of a lifetime, when she returned home she discovered that she had bought a piece of wood decorated with a Best Buy ad and the Apple logo. Maybe she can sell it on eBay as an early prototype. I've heard the iPad was originally supposed to come with a Best Buy circular glued to it.
    Don't start laughing yet, because two women were duped into buying $250 worth of paper in the same city.


    WYFF-Channel 4 reports that a man matching the same description (gold teeth and white car) approached two women claiming he was selling iPads, iPods and laptops at discounted prices. Investigators say that after a quick trip to the ATM, the women bought the laptops in a FedEx box for $250. When they returned home they discovered a power cord (those can be expensive) and a stack of paper wrapped in black duct tape.
    It seems like the man with a golden smile is getting lazy. His black piece of wood with Apple logo was so much more creative, but at least this time he included an accessory.
