    The original story said she was disabled and on a fixed income, she looks to be in her late 50s or early 60s to me.

    apple makes a good product but at times it turns around and bites itself in the butt for some of it stupid ways about doing business in it stores..

    i can see if a person walked into the store and ask for 100 ipads that should be a red flag right away but a person walking in and asking for a single ipad and will to pay in cash ..to me why lose a sale of a product that way ..it simple things in business that gets you into trouble with your public at times ..it not really big things that can tip the public againest your products ..it comes sometimes to the little things that turn your buyers off your product for good ..

    Trying hopelessly to get some good PR following the lost IPhone 4G/HD fiasco.

    I believe that they will lift the ban after the international launch passes. Obviously they are trying to prevent people trying to get only profit from the iPad. And this is there means to stop that. But they should be considerate to some cases as to this disabled lady, but it's a double edge sword, once you give one exception your turning on your word. Hopefully they lift it once there is an abundance of ipads. And it's not like it hard for them to sell iPad so they are not worried about lossing some cash sales.
