There are many reasons one would give when returning an iPad 2. However, telling Apple it was because of a spouse is probably not an answer often heard. Until now. According to MacRumors, Apple is paying close attention to why iPad 2s are being returned during the first few weeks to make sure there are no major production defects. This checking led to this interesting story:
[Apple's] focus this week has been to troubleshoot all the iPad 2s that customers are returning to the stores. One iPad came back with a post it note on it that said "Wife said no." It was escalated as something funny, and two of the VPs got wind of it. They sent the guy an iPad 2 with a note on it that said "Apple said yes."I would imagine the wife in question is embarrassed her story got out. Of course, the husband is probably one happy puppy.
