Gregory McKenna, Florissant, Mo, says the iPods contained illegal receivers that allowed the Mafia to contact him.

McKenna purchased an iPod Shuffle from eBay in 2005 and discovered that the Mafia was able to send him audio threats through the device. McKenna also said an iPod Mini that he owned enabled the Mafia to generate death threats.

The lawsuit is claiming damages in the amount of $14.2 million.

Now eBay may not be the safest place in the world to buy goods, but having two iPods, both with Mafia receivers in them is quite a misfortune. It sounds like a nightmare…literally.

Just an honest feedback: what is Mckenna talking about? suing Apple is so far-off.

by the way, thanks for visiting my site.

Haha. I mean why would Apple want to work with the Mafia? Paranoia or just a publicity stunt, i don’t know. Let’s see how it goes in court.
