We have a winner! ^_^

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it’s already been two weeks since I put the flaming iBook for sale…

The bidding went well in the comments and now, after two weeks of bidding-frenzy, we have a winner!

Max is the winner with a bid of $356

Update: Welllll… I waited for two days to get an answer from Max, but he probably forgot he bid or ran out of money or both… Anyway, I moved on to the runner-up, gmlk and he reacted right away!

I’ll get in touch to discuss the details.

But first of all, cheers to you all!

...and I’m in the middle of a project now, so I’m gonna continue to do some work, aight? ^_^

    ah cmon, that is lame… you would also hate it if someone bids $1 over you and gets away with it. lol what a pussy

    Well, his bid has stood there for 5 days, so even though it’s only $1 over the other bid, there was plenty of room to go over that I guess… Any way, if I can get in touch with this guy he’s the winner.

    I gave the ibook to my mother who is now really enjoying being online for the first time on her very own notebook.

    She is now chatting with her friends, her grandchildren, looking up the family history and more.

    Like in the mastercard adverts: “Priceless”.

    Just to let you all know: The iBook has died again. :(

As mentioned in the Message from Mark's family this site has been made static. This means that it will be no longer possible to comment on his ideas and projects, but that we all can continue to cherish his creativity.
