Apple no longer taking cash for iPhone purchases, you have got to be kidding me


In an attempt to limit the number of people buying an iPhone just to unlock the damn thing, Apple has decided that it will now require a credit or debit card to own one of history’s most over hyped pieces of technology. You can only purchase 2 iPhones per card as well, forget buying one for everyone in your family. I’m completely baffled by this decision. People are no longer able to walk into an Apple store with cold hard American greenbacks and purchase an iPhone. People have commented on Engadget saying that this is legal, but they’re not lawyers so take that with a grain of salt.

How angry are you about this? I’m just shocked at the lengths Steve goes to keep his device out of the hands of people who do not want to play by his rules.

    Absurd! I have no interest or intention of getting an iphone however, I still feel that this is fundamently wrong. Such high handed haughty behaviour should not be acceptable. In today’s customer driven market if we allow ourselves to be played by one manufacturer it would be a shame!
