[citation][nom]fudoka711[/nom]Correct me if I'm wrong, but if its against the policy of Apple to sell its products to people from those nations...how would that work when purchasing something online? What's stopping them? And yes, we're assuming someone actually wants to buy one of their products.Funny how Apple doesn't support communist nations and also singles out everyone of Iranian descent even though we know not all Iranian's are terrorists. All the while Apple makes over 50% profits off their iPads which are made in China under grueling working conditions and pay (no matter what any committee tells us...its way worse than it would be if it were manufactured in the USA, Canada, or Europe).[/citation]
Correct me if I'm wrong...
OK, I think I will.
What would stop them from buying online? Ah, the shipping addresses. Now people can find was to get around things, but the address would be the first defense.
Apple doesn't support communist nations...
You do know Apple doesn't make US law right? Did you miss the part where the article said U.S. holds complete trade embargoes with Iran before you started Apple bashing? That would mean it's the US government that will not allow the sale to those places. Now you could have said it was wrong for the people in the store to assume that this customer was not a US citizen because of the language she was speaking, but you didn't.
As for Apple manufacturing in China. While that has nothing to do with this article I think you would be correct to assume they are doing this for pure greed. The thing is just about any other major electronic company or PC manufacturer is doing the same thing. Almost everything in your house is made in China. Oh, and most of that electronic stuff was made at Foxconn (the very same place where Apple devices are made).

Apple bash all you want, but know your facts!
