Donâ€™t you just love a happy ending?! Apple Insider reports this afternoon the hot-off-the-press news that Apple has given Diane Campbell a free iPad, and at the same time reversed their â€œno-cash-for-iPadâ€ policy. You might recall sheâ€™s the San Francisco woman who just a couple of days ago was told by her local Apple store that they didnâ€™t take cash when she went there to buy an iPad with her savings. Apple Sr. Vice President Ron Johnson told Mrs. Campbellâ€™s local news station KGO-TV that after the station had brought Mrs. Campbellâ€™s plight to their attention, Apple decided to change the policy on a company-wide basis. So, from today onwards, Apple stores will be happy to take your cash, provided you set up an Apple account at the store.
â€œWe heard about this, we all would love people like Diane to get an iPad, so I called her up and she was very excited and weâ€™re actually on our way to deliver an iPad to her house,â€ Johnson told KGO-TV. Diane Campbell responded by saying that she is â€œso excitedâ€, not just about getting an iPad, but about actually getting Apple to change its policy.
