It was the talk of the web. Even the Atlantic weighed in.
Somebody claiming to have a Microsoft Xbox360 autographed by former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin two days before she left office put it up for auctionon Ebay...for $1.1 million.
It got one bid. For $1.1 million.
And then it disappeared.
There was much discussion on the blogosphere about what happened. Then came some knock-off Palin Xbox's on Ebay for $1,100, one tenth of one percent of the $1.1 million pricetag. The fauXbox sported forged autographs. But even they disappeared.
