Is there anyone else out there that is as disgusted as me about this story? this is total crap ! If Apple are going to racially profile customers then I will now racially profile American products ! I will now boycott ANYTHING made in USA! I would have told the shop assistant to shove it where the sun dont shine ! in any case the Samsung Galaxy is far more superior than the iPhone

"While Sabet is a U.S. citizen and a student at the University of Georgia, she was purchasing the iPad for a cousin living in Iran."

Could it be that she told the employee that she was purchasing it for her cousin in Iran? If so... that isn't profiling. Granted, I don't know if it is the sales person's job to enforce that part of the policy, but the policy did say that products aren't supposed to go to Iran.

Soft drinks and cutting edge technology.... I can see how you might not understand the difference in importance

Don't think Apple makes anything in the USA. Not that it would make a difference since Apple gets a free pass from everybody who hates the 1% and hates corporations who exploit China to make money. Talking tough is one thing; giving up an iPad or Iphone or Ipod is something else
