Then he went shit out of luck on April 17, when Mr Snow’s fateful visit at Apple store limited his purchases to an end for the rest for his life. The unexpected conversation between Mr Snow (Me) and Apple folks (Guy#1, Guy#2),that concluded his ban went like this -
Me (nonchalantly) — “Is there an issue?”Guy #2 — “There is a limit to the number of iPads that customers can buy.”Me (playing dumb) — “Oh, is that right? What’s the limit?”Guy #2 — “Only 2 per customer.”Guy #1 — “I’m sorry sir, but you have reached your lifetime limit of iPad purchases and will not be allowed to buy any more.”Me (anticipating that statement) — “Is the iPad limit per person? Per credit card? Per household?”Guy #1 — “All I can say is that you have reached your lifetime limit.”Me — “What does that mean? Can I use a different credit card to buy it? I’m buying this for a friend.”Guy #1 — “You are not allowed to buy this iPad.”Me — “Uhh… is it ok if I have a family member or friend come to buy it for me? My reservation doesn’t expire until 6:00 PM.”Guy #1 — “All I can say is that you have reached your lifetime limit.”Me (suddenly realizing what he’s saying) — “Wait, what? Lifetime? What does that mean?”Guy #1 — “All I can say is that you have reached your lifetime limit of iPads and will not be allowed to buy any more.”Me — “I’m banned from buying iPads? I know there’s a shortage right now, but I can’t buy any more once there’s plenty of stock?”Guy #1 — “All I can say is that you have reached your lifetime limit.”Me — “Ok buddy, I’m not going to make a scene so I’m leaving. How many iPads is the limit by the way?”Guy #1 — “That information is not available.”Me (looking at Guy #2, who has been silent this whole time) — “He tells me that the limit is two.”Guy #1 — “I wish I could say but I do not have that information.”Me — “I’ve already purchased more than 2 iPads. Why didn’t anybody else stop me in the past?”Guy #1 — “I wish I could say but I do not have that information.”Me — “Alright, I’ve had enough. Have a good day.”
Guess Apple is tightening its grip on iPad and is reworking its watch on the grey market. Meanwhile, Mr Snow’s blog has been hammered by 240 plus comments and shit load of traffic :)
