    So I was just looking on Egay for a wireless adaptor for an xbox 360, and i come across people selling guides on how to bypass the adaptor by setting it up through your pc, now to me this is a peace of p**s, I have this done now, but if you look on the net, you will find this guide anywhere for free, but people actually sell this, it's crazy.
    Anyway just thought I would share as I was very shocked, if I had thought about this a few months ago I could have done this myself lol.

    some people are just too lazy/stupid to look elsewhere, they see what they want for a couple dollars and just buy it...they could also be seen as smart if their time searching around for the free product is worth more than the money spent to buy it.

    Too bad ebay doesn't allow that anymore, I think you have to ship them a CD now!! I guess they caught on..

    I cannot believe some of the things that do NOT get sold, I was looking at some dresses there and oh GOD! you would see an amazing dress with a wonderful price and a great shipping and handling offer with zero bids (and some other crap with 3-4 of these).

    Yeah, I totally agree, you can also find eBooks on how to fix the RRoD for free on Google, but people try to sell them for $50...
