eh. this is not news. if that woman just said "this ipad is for my personal use" they would have given it to her. but re-exporting US technology to Iran IS a crime.

Not the first or last time Apple's involved in something controversial. For such a leader in the high-tech industry, Apple can really act irrational, like the time they broke into a guy's home and seized his computers. It's not like other high-tech companies don't have controversies of their own, but this is out of line and reeks of stupidity. The girl's already got an Apple product and transaction history with the company. It's obvious she wanted to buy something for her own use, not for exporting it to Iran. Silly Apple.

1) The seller was being ridiculous.
2) It's not Apple's fault for following the US' ban on exports to Iran.
3) The Iranian couple should have lied and said that they were talking Arabic or Hindi or Spanish (it's all the same).

^^ This might only result in an ipad scam

Ipad scams on craigslist. Don't fall for it.


I thought I would post this here to warn anyone who is thinking about trying to cop a ipad on craigslist. If something is too good to be true then it probably is.

I have been browsing on craigslist and the prices here in Houston for a 64gb have been anywhere from 800 to 1200 bucks!!! I really don't have 800 to drop on a ipad but I came to a dope ass post. Basically, there was a white guy that wanted to trade his 16gb ipad for a BJ. I called him and offered him 350 for the it but he said that all he wanted was the BJ and I could have the ipad after that. I've never given a white dude a BJ before and when I told my baby daddy about it, he thought it was disgusting. I later got him to let me do it since he knew how much I wanted the ipad and his broke ass couldn't get me one so being the independent strong black woman that I am I felt like I should take the initiative plus there is nothing but apple products in my home and an ipad would look swagged out next to my hello kitty iphone. Homie seemed pretty legit so I decided to go along with it.



We met at the Starbucks across from the Galleria and he showed me the ipad in his black car. The ipad was in mint condition and he had the box and erryyythangggg. We agreed that I would give him the BJ in the starbucks bathroom and I would get the ipad afterward. He seemed to be a pretty honest guy. He was a white caucasian male dressed kinda weird in cargo shorts and nike flip flops and he looked like a chill dude. Anyways, I gave him the BJ and it lasted about a good 2 minutes. I was kind of scared because it was my first time doing anything like this but he made me really comfortable because I think he could tell it was my first time with a stranger, he even had me take a pic of him and his car earlier. Well after all that, the BJ was over I was relieved when we finished and he congratulated me on the whole thing. I think that fact that I was finally getting my mitts on a ipad totally clouded my judgement.



The guy started to act all wierd and said that it would seem odd if we both walked out of the bathroom at the same time so he said that he should go out first while I get cleaned up and then I could meet him at his car to get the ipad. I did what he said and when I gotz outside, he was long gone!!! I am so crunked up. I've been calling his cellski all day and he won't even answer. My baby daddy is pissed because I don't have the ipad even though I gave him the BJ. I thought I would file a police report about the whole thing but I figured I would have probably looked like a idiot doing so. So I'm just venting here to let everyone know that craigslists scams are real and I was the victim of one. I will continue my quest to get a ipad doe and hopefully I will have one soon.
scary! btw is this you Zoola?

actually the article misrepresents what happened. if you read it carefully you will note that the woman did tell the salesperson that she intended to give the ipad to a relative in Iran. and that is a CRIME.
