All hell broke loose at 6:54am on August the 16th in Richmond, Virgina when up to 10,000 ppl who had been queing since 1am the night before, try their luck at grabbing 1000 Apple iBooks that were being disposed for US$50 each by the Richmond International Raceway.
This reminded me of the McDonald’s Hello Kitty craze that swept through South-East Asia a few years back, and the annual Myer Stocktake Sales in Australia. Ppl would risk life and limb just to get a bargain. Something is wrong with their priorities. Don’t you think? 😉
