When we were teens and wanted the latest, hot gadget (oh that sweet, sweet Sony walkman), we had to wait. There was no other option. Now, in a time when instant gratification is king, that's no longer the case as 17-year -old Fei Lam proved.
Frustrated with how long it was taking for Apple to launch the white iPhone 4, he decided to leverage his own business network (seriously, what 17-year-old already has a business network?) to contact the supplier, Foxconn, directly for the parts.
Teen buys parts to convert black iPhone to white. Teen creates website to sell said parts. Teen makes $130,000 in a couple of months (and growing). Teen is a rockstar. Teen will takeover the world... if Apple doesn't slap teen with a big fat lawsuit first.
