Apple does not take no for an answer

Written by Nick Farell

You will have an iPad
There is a story circulating on the world wide wibble that Apple is refusing to take no for an answer when it comes to its iPad 2.

According to MacRumours Apple is paying close attention to all iPad 2 returns during the first few weeks to make sure there are no major production defects. However the team was puzzled by an iPad came back to Apple head office with a post it note on it that said "Wife said no."

Initially the team was amused and started telling the story of the sad bloke who had to give his iPad2 back because his wife had said no. But two of the VPs got wind of it and sent the guy an iPad 2 with a note on it that said "Apple said yes."

Macrumours thinks that a free iPad satisfied any objection the customer's wife might have had. But then again, perhaps not. There is not enough room on a post-it-note. The guy probably wanted to write one of the following:

“Wife said no keyboard.”
“Wife said no flash”
“Wife said no point.
“Wife said no sex for making such a brainless purchase”

4th one is a killer... they always do that, "you don't do as I say, then you can sleep on the couch".

If the wife wanted a tablet with a keyboard, she should be given no right to argue technology, since such a request is nothing short of stupidity.

Otherbuns, I think this is what the guy's wife wants http://www.techpowerup.com/142640/ASUS-To-Launch-Eee-Pad-Transformer-This-Friday.html or this http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=QhWKR7Fmv4jDLbBY
She's kinda smart by the looks of it.

Quoting Otherbuns:

I think you should rethink your comment, and look at yourself. How cool is it to ALSO have an attachable keyboard like the Asus Blobber linked? Now I'm actually, for the first time, considering getting this for my GF (she's been wanting a small mobile device for a while)!

ArticleFAIL! Like 90% of Nick's articles really are. I seriously thought that I was going to read a relevant article. Once again, I am wrong. Seriously, who want's to read a story about some whipped man returning his toy? Nick, I need you to type up articles about video cards...or even sound cards since we don't hear much about those anyway. How about more info about Bulldozer? Something relevant and NOT about what you don't like. Take out the FOX News complex please.

Um... no. If it was a bitch I don't care about, then sure, but otherwise no.

I thought it was quite humorous of the Apple staff.

Um... no. If it was a bitch I don't care about, than sure, but otherwise no.

Absolutely. Besides, you have to sleep sometime too, and women are brilliant at coming up with ways to get even. If I tried something like that, I'd be waking up to a staple passing through my sack.

And about Nick, a lot of people don't like his style, but I get a kick out of it. I guess we have a similar sense of humor. You can't take everything he says so seriously, lighten up! If you don't like his sarcasm, you don't have to read his articles.
