    That's where he fucked up. If he's an American citizen, he should have said "I'm from [insert town where he lives here]". Apple is under such scrutiny from everyone, they'd probably get busted if someone started shipping iPads to Iran.

    Be mad at your shitty country for inspiring fear and hatred in the minds of Americans at the mere mention of its name.

    Did she say so at the time? If not, it's entirely irrelevant.

    Nice try, savage. We're on to your little scam to supply Iran with iPads. And you're a citizen? Treason!!

    I'm sure OWS will protest Apple stores now because of their racism and bowing to the government's racist policies... I'm waiting... :rolleyes:

    I am proud of this Apple store employee - let's face it those stores are usually staffed with complete douche bags

    They're at the store most of the time they're not protesting anyway.

    Stopped reading after I noticed where the story originated. Awful part of the world. It's not the Sudan, or the Congo, but it's pretty fucking close.

    They did them a favor, over priced garbage. They use slave labor and then charge 60$ for a shitty 2gb mp3 player, with no display, that can't hold a charge for longer than a hour after 3 months.
