Submission + - Apple store refuses to sell iPad to Iranian-American woman (yahoo.com) 2

pdclarry writes: An Iranian-American teenager was told by an Apple store employee that they could not sell her an iPad because it would violate US trade restrictions. She returned to the store with a camera crew from a local TV station and was again turned down.

Apparently an Apple employee heard her speaking Farsi. As he was also of Iranian extraction he recognized the language and used this as a basis for refusal.
