  4. Craigslist Ad Selling Crate Full of iPhones Somehow Not Legit, Leads to Armed Robbery

    Really, the ad might as well have said "Mugger needs cash, seeking victim."

    Here's a life lesson, folks -- if someone on the Internet offers to sell you a box of 50 iPhones for $10,000, then they're probably trying to rob you. A man in South Seattle, Washington found that out the hard way recently when he met with a prospective seller on Monday, only to get robbed of his $10,000 at gunpoint.Well, at least he didn't get murdered. That's always a plus when that doesn't happen.

  5. Bachelor Party Seeks Topless Dungeon Master Who Has Her Own Books, Somehow Endearing

    Bachelor parties are kind of an odd tradition, but tradition they remain. However, the tradition of what they entail isn't so much set in stone. Sure, some people end up on a crazy adventure in Las Vegas with Bradley Cooper (and really, who hasn't?), but others just want to have one last bachelor hurrah eating junk food and playing some old-fashioned tabletop games. The person behind this ad on Craigslist, though, is shooting for the moon, and asking for the best of both worlds.

  8. 6-Foot, Half-Ton Wine Rack Mech for Sale on Craigslist

    You probably wouldn't imagine that many wine connoisseurs are particularly interested in Transformer-style mech robots, but for the one or two out there who are, a very unique and uniquely awesome wine rack is on the market. As much art installation as wine rack, the WineMech stands six feet tall and is a one-of-a-kind and custom-welded out of a massive collection of used transmission parts from a veritable army of automobiles. Each piece has been meticulously cleaned to insure the removal of all corrosive meaterials, painted gunmetal grey, and clear-coated. In addition to being able to hold approximately 32 bottles of wine, this bad boy is also out-fitted with a bunch of LEDs because why not?

  9. Another Apple Employee Loses Another iPhone Prototype at Another Bar

    So, after an Apple employee lost an iPhone 4 prototype in a bar -- a prototype that wound up in Gizmodo's hands and caused all kinds of trouble -- it appears that at least one Apple employee took the opportunity to not learn his lesson and accordingly lost an iPhone 5 prototype (we think) in a bar, CNET reports. Now as bizarrely coincidental as this sounds, there are a few poetic coincidences we can't draw. It's not the same bar, almost certainly not the same employee and, worst of all, it hasn't resulted in any fun information for us, the unwashed masses.

    The phone was apparently lost at a bar in the Mission District of San Francisco, Cave 22. While Apple has been going to all lengths to try and get this thing back, understandably, its current whereabouts are unknown, to us at least. There appears to be a chance that it was sold on Craigslist for a scant $200, in which case, neither party may be aware that what they have is special. If that's the case, either the iPhone 5 is pretty similar to the iPhone 4, the guy who found it was really drunk (or needs to get with the times) or it wasn't actually an iPhone 5 prototype. Still, maybe some interesting information will surface.

  10. Boston Man Accused of Making “Millions” Selling Forged Subway Cards

    If you live in a metropolitan area and have ever idly wondered if someone (not you of course!) could successfully forge a subway pass, the answer is a resounding "yes," according to Massachusetts' attorney general. A man who worked for Cubic Transportation Systems, Inc., the company contracted by the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority to make monthly subway passes, faces larceny charges for allegedly forging millions of dollars worth of fake passes and selling them for cheap on Craigslist or in back-alley deals. Here's how he was caught:
