No More iPad For You
This reminds me of the Soup Nazi on Seinfeld...just don't piss of the guy dishing it out, especially if they are iPads!
A medical student wrote on his blog Protocol Snow, claims to buying the iPads for members of a gaming forum living outside the U.S.
"I was doing this as a favour, unlike hoarders who were unloading iPads on eBay to cash in on the $150+ markup," notes the student. "Instead, my asking prices were very reasonable, just enough to cover all the tax, international express shipping, and PayPal fees with a little left over for unexpected costs."
"When asked to clarify the ban and if it applied to iPads only, his credit card or household, the Apple staff member reportedly told the student: "All I can say is that you have reached your lifetime limit," and "You are not allowed to buy this iPad."
When the student asked about how many iPads purchases would result in an Apple ban, the staff member said: "That information is not available."
Sounds like a bunch of hooey to me...
