Can you really get an iPad for $5 at those penny auction sites?

You all see those ads saying you can win an auction for an iPad for $5.

Does anyone really win something at those prices?

We'll follow up here after talking later today with Nick Darveau-Garneau, the CEO of, one auction site that claims to be doing straight-up auctions for honestly low prices.  We'll be doing a Q and A that we'll record, so you can listen to the key parts, if you wish. 

And we'll post a quick summary of the points made during that interview.
