    Lol. This reminds me when I was in the Air Force. I met this smoking hot Chinese chick but wasn't allowed to sign her on base to bring her back to my place because she was from a communist country. Trust me, it wasn't her nationalism I was after ;)

    Good.

    Nice to see someone enforces embargo's and the like.

    They identified themselves as from Iran and they did not get any product.

    So whats the problem?

    They identified themselves as from "Iran"

    They didn't get squat.

    Again what is wrong with that?

    They did not say I'm a US citizen or I live 2 blocks from here, they identified themselves as from Iran.

    Also for a point neither the paste above references she is a US citizen and its only in the main feed as an add in to it.

    If they would have answered Cuba, North Korea or the other ones on the list they results would have been the same.

    The problem here is that Apple probably considers itself to be a country.


    Well, and I guess the possible discrimination too.

    Nothing wrong at all. Take into consideration the lack of reform going on in the arid lands.

    Apple's policy dictates they can't sell things to people who live in certain foreign countries, if they make it known. If they don't say anything, no big deal. The customers made it known, the employee did what they were instructed to, end of story.

    I used to work for Apple, this actually happens every few months.

    That said, this is definitely going to turn political, so we're done now.
