A US gamer has been banned from ever buying another iPad. Why? He reached his "lifetime limit".
Who knew that such a limit existed? Not The Reg
Using the handle Protocol Snow, the now-banned iPad buyer tells his story of intrigue in a personal blog post
. But be forewarned: as he notes, the post "is getting hammered with traffic and load times are quite substantial".
It seems Snow wanted to pass a few iPads to fellow NeoGAF
gaming forum members outside the US who were craving their own "magical and revolutionary
" devices, but whose hopes had been dashed by Apple's decision to delay
international iPad sales by a month.
And so, being a Good iSamaritan, he took it upon himself to buy multiple iPads and ship them to his fellow gamers, charging them only enough extra to cover tax, shipping, insurance, and Paypal credit card fees.
