No. They reversed the policy simply because of the bad press they got. In the business world that's all it takes. WoM, aka Word of Mouth is a very powerful and effective way to either boost sales or create enough negative light that it stalemates it some. Had the media never profiled that women the policy would still be in effect. Apple used that little negative press to generate some free good press. As people in Radio say, all press, even bad press is, is good press. It's like getting a free plug.

It seems to me that Apple would rather have cash than plastic. With plastic you run the risk of not getting paid.
I think their reasoning behind this could be the fact that the amount of cash in the store would be STAGGERING the first month of iPad release. Giving criminals a damn good reason to walk in the store with an iShotgun and freakin iSnap!!!!
Could be wrong but this is my opinion, can't figure any other reason to not accept cash...
