Contrary to what we have been hearing in tips it does not look like Apple will be price matching any iPads any time soon. Reader Josh e-mailed Steve Jobs asking if he would price match the TJ Maxx $399 deal and got a nice, short answer:

Nope.

The e-mail conversation also asked Apple CEO Steve Jobs if TJ Maxx is an Apple authorized reseller and Jobs once again said “nope.” Apple and Steve Jobs are clearly not thrilled about TJ Maxx’s iPad stunt this week and we are yet to see the final outcome of the incidents.
