Last week, Apple surprisingly announced that sales of the AirPods, Apple's wireless audio solution, has started. Announced for an October delivery in early September, they were struck by delays for almost two months, apparently due to technical problems. The initial two weeks shipping window increased quickly however, so at the moment of writing, it will take Apple six weeks to fulfill any AirPods orders, way too late for a Christmas present. 

If you have your eyes set on the AirPods and absolutely must get them before Saturday next week, there is a solution however: ebay. A bunch of dealers offer Apple's AirPods with guaranteed Christmas delivery if you are willing to pay a premium. While Apple sells their AirPods for $159, the cheapest ebay offer with allegedly guaranteed Christmas delivery starts at $330, going up all the way to $999. Quite an expensive gift, if you choose to go down that road. Meanwhile Apple has revealed how much it will cost you, if you loose one of the two pods. According to Apple's service pricing page, they will charge you $69 to replace it.
