She just wants another one for free. And yes it's pretty funny because she will get what she wants in the end and everything will be ok. Don't buy nice stuff at Wally world unless you check the condition

Like i don't understand peoples logic. Apple has set prices on all there stuff, it will be the same price (+ or - $5) wherever you go.

Why not go to best buy or costco (wholesale store) where people can't pull that #@#@#@#@.

Wal-Mart added that someone had bought an iPad at its store, professionally resealed it with the yellow notepads inside and returned it. The company is now examining surveillance video to see if the miscreant can be identified.
Not sure how you can blame the second customer for this one. Walmart didn't check their returns and put it right back on the shelf.

Or next time you're at the store would you happily wait in line while everyone in front of you opened all their boxes of stuff to check the contents?

What I don't understand is that they can no doubt trace it by SN and find out if it's been on any of Apple's services.

very true. but if i were to buy an ipad (or an apple product in a box where you can't see the product) from anywhere other than the apple store or best buy, i would definitely open it on the spot.

So your telling me that you open every package you buy thats not see through or has a window? I call BS...If I would open all the boxes when I go grocery shopping that would be retarded...TONS of people go to these stores expecting what is on the box since Walmart is (the last I checked) in the Forbes top 100 and "somewhat" a respectable store, even though these people tend to show up:

Funny Pictures at WalMart

Also that eyePad above is awesome hahaha

Well i have never bought a high dollar item from any place other than best buy or apple store. Its really easy for a store to give you a new $2.00 box of cereal if theres not cereal than a store giving you a return on a $500 iPad if theres no iPad.

Agree and agree.

It's ridiculous to suggest you should crack open a box while in the store to make sure what you're buying is actually in there as a potential fix to being scammed. That's just asking for more theft than what happened in this scenario.

Well, that's exactly what Apple wants you to think but the iPad is essentially a commodity item now. It doesn't matter where you buy it from, it's the same thing.

As for WMT, if they can't handle selling it, agreed, they shouldn't be selling it. But obviously Apple has no problem selling through them.

Why are people that are shopping at wal mart buying an Ipad? I thought they shop there because of lower prices. You don't have that extra .50 for a can of campbells soup but you got money for an Ipad?

There is no way that is Vermont. We don't have an SuperCenters (really, we don't).

Oh, and on another note, there are more pictures claiming to be from Vermont on that site (5) than there are Walmarts in Vermont (4)
