The iPad purchasing limit is for your own good.

Cult of Mac reported on an apparent policy at Apple to limit the number of iPads a person can purchase, ever, effectively resulting in a lifetime limit. They act like this is a bad thing:

The iPad may be too popular for its own good:  Apple seems to be imposing limits on how many you can buy.

You’re missing the point, Cult of Mac: it’s not that the iPad is too popular for its own good, it’s that the iPad is too popular for the health of the world. Seriously, could you imagine if normal people had simultaneous access to more than three iPads? Their hearts would explode, because it would be too much magical and amazing for normal circulatory systems to handle. Also, probably, people would crap their pants if they launched that many iPads at once.

So, once again, my close personal friend Steve Jobs is performing an amazing public service, this time by making sure his amazing new product doesn’t kill you.

    I don’t think an iPad could kill me more than any of Apple’s other products…

    The limit is an attempt to limit the effect of speculators who buy up the available quantities and resale them for profit. I suspect as production ramps up and demand goes down, the lifetime limit may disappear.

    By the way, great show, keep it up 😉
