Costco pulling iPod, iPhone, everything Apple from shelves

Well it looks like that tip we got last week about Costco pulling iPod and everything Apple from their US Stores, and iPhone as well from their Canadian stores is now getting confirmed around the web.

The story goes an emergency conference call was set up to inform staff in both the warehouse proper and the mobile sales kiosk that all Apple products, accessories, etc. were being pulled.

iLounge has added a potential reason -- Costco didn't get the iPad when Walmart, Target, Amazon, Verizon, AT&T, et. al did and this is payback. Or just a way to cut off their nose to spite Apple's face.

Given the money on the table, however, I wouldn't be surprised if they came to terms and iPads started flowing from C

Either way, anyone going to miss Costco as their source for some things Apple?
