News: Pay in Cash? Not if you want to buy an iPhone

"I'm sorry, we don't accept cash." Not something you tend to hear when you are out shopping, but apparently if you are planning on picking up an iPhone now, that is what you are going to hear. On top of that, the previous limit of 5 iPhones has now been reduced to 2. What is the reasoning behind this? To discourage unauthorized resellers. Apple says that they are trying to ensure that there are enough iPhone's in stock for the holiday shopping season, but we are sure that the current estimate that 250,000 iPhones purchased thus far are intended to be unlocked plays into this decision as well. -via Crunchgear
