Didn't get in on the frenzy of the new iPhone 5 release?  Apple sold over two million of its new phones in just one day.  If you don't want to wait an extra month for your new iPhone to ship, you can get one on eBay. If your willing to pay ridiculous money, that is.  The 64GB model is being offered for as much as $1,600!

I don't understand the excitement but I do remember my first cellular phone.  I found a video of an ad for the phone on YouTube.  It makes me laugh because we did pay that much for it and I think the first bill we received was nearly $600!  Luckily the company I worked for paid for my cell phone service. My cell phone service is covered by my company  today as well but I think my phone was free and I think my monthly access is around $29.95.  What a difference a couple decades make.

Did you have one of the first "portable cellular devices"?
