Default READING GOOD(ebay talk)

Remember my idea to use a TI-83 SE's case as the back of my 89? Well it seems some people can't read "does not turn on"

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...780153550&rd=1

Not that this is the first time something like this happened. I mean I'm sure some of you guys have heard of people getting an Xbox retail BOX rather than the actual unit ;P

As it seems... I mean, it could work for all we know. Dad got an MP3 player once that said it was broken but all it needed was a battery! Still, I wouldn't pay more than $10 for that. Working ones have gone for less than $50!

It is ebay and this guy may be pumping up the price to get more from it too.

I bought a Police scanner once.. Final proce was 23 dollars.. total for 28 bucks with shipping.. I emaild that guy telling him I recieved it.. He told me If I figure out whats wrong with it tell him. Plugged it in and it scanned. but didn't pick anything up..

looked on the net programed in some frequencies and bang.. Still sitting here working perfectly.. I emaild him back and told him what was wrong.. The kid had the nerve to ask for 20 more dollars!!!!

Not really on your topic but it was an ebay story.

I think you can find anything you want for cheap at either Walmart or eBay. But anyway, how's the calculator search going?
