    I've been watching but not bidding at the iPad auctions on Quiibids.com.
    It's not unusual for the losing bidders to exhaust several hundred chances at $0.60 a throw, coming away with nothing. The Quiibid site tells you that it isn't a ripoff, because losing bidders can apply the cost of expended bids toward a "Buy It Now" purchase, obtaining the item at stated price minus cost of bids, plus shipping. Oh, by the way, the iPad Wi-Fi only16 gig model has a price of $725.00 to 'buy it now'.

    Oh, don't be hasty. They're now "selling" the 32 gig WiFi iPad for $900. :)

    Yeah. And guess how pissed off the 'winners' will be when they discover that they are wayyyyy back at the end of the line for order fullfillment. That site shows closed auctions for 11 iPads stretching back to the 8th of April or so, and I know that there were more that aged off the page listing. I'm pretty sure that it was impossible for Quibids to obtain those quantities of iPads in advance of the auctions.....as it is, they'll probably have to set up strawman purchases to get them from Apple or even Best Buy.
