I bought my first used Apple device via eBay about a month ago. For a full 2 weeks, I was sure I had just bought a paperweight. My story could have ended in disaster, but thanks to a very accommodating seller, all’s well that ends well. But, I don’t think I’ll do it again.
Old iPods have apparently become the latest craze in the world of collectables. As noted by The Guardian, various Apple-branded MP3 players from the early 2000s are going for insane prices on eBay right now, depending of course on the model and condition. For example, a factory-sealed third-generation iPod shuffle is listed on the auction site at $999.95, and it has 10 watchers. A fourth-generation U2 edition iPod is priced at just under $7,000. And a new-in-box second-generation iPod classic? A staggering $20,000.
The PayPal app for iOS, which has been long over-due for an update, has finally received its much-needed update on Thursday that adds official support for the retina HD displays of Apple’s 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch handsets.
The app, which is still a free download from the App Store, has been completely redesigned with a slew of changes to make using the app not only feel better, but look better.
Who wants free money? If you do, know there is currently a limited amount of iTunes gift card on eBay available at a 20% discount, effectively giving you free money. As of writing, you can score a $100 iTunes gift card for only $80. If you’re interested, act fast because these deals won’t last long.
Online retail giant eBay is celebrating its 20th anniversary today. To mark the occasion, the company has released a long-expected revamp to its iPhone and iPad bidding app in the App Store.
For starters, eBay 4.0 for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, a free download, sports a revamped appearance along with an all-new app icon. At long last, the app is now universal and provides an easier access to top deals, promotions and events, “balanced with streamlined ways to access the powerful eBay features you’ve come to rely on.”
The folks over at eBay are selling US-only instant $100 iTunes gift cards for 25% off, which makes for a killer deal.
True, $100 is a lot of money, but if you’re planning on buying an expensive app in the near future, this deal could save you some major coin.
Say you were in the market for Final Cut Pro X, an app that’s $299.99 on the Mac App Store. You could buy three $100 gift cards for only $225. That means you’re essentially getting FCP X for $75 below its retail price, a significant savings.
Or perhaps you’re in the market for Logic Pro X, Apple’s professional DAW. That app runs at $199.99, but with this deal, it could be yours for $50 off.
eBay’s bidding application for the iPhone and iPad is about to get a whole lot better as the e-commerce service announced plans to streamline its App Store offering.
As part of the restructuring effort, eBay will shutter its Valet, Fashion and Motors apps and fold some of their functionality into the main iPhone and iPad client, available free of charge in the App Store.
