To Those Who Paid $600 for the iPhone...

$200 price drop in 2 months. Take that early adopters!

Steve Jobs is the P.T. Barnum of the 21st century, but that doesn't stop me from wanting that iPod Touch for Jesus' BDay.

Anyone want to slide one out the back of Best Buy for me?


  1. I can think of much worse ways to spend $100 for a month. Well, I'm a geek like dat.

  2. I'm more interested in the new ipod nano with the little video screen. It's about $149, and will play the music and video. I'm cool with my old cell phone. Besides, I'd never be able to keep an iphone clean.

  3. This just in: In his open letter to iPhone owners Steve Jobs offers $100 store credit for those "poor early adopters". Not bad, eh?

  4. vic - That iPod Nano screen is too small for video.
    I have a phone with a 2.5" screen vs. the Nano's 2" screen and its not worth the eye strain.

    Perttu peep this analysis of the rebate -

    "Had nobody complained, Apple would have left it at that. But Jobs expected complaints and had an answer waiting — the $100 Apple store credit. This was no knee-jerk reaction, either. It was already there just waiting if needed. Apple keeps an undeserved $50 million and customers get $50 million back. Or do they? Some customers will never use their store credit. Those who do use it will nearly all buy something that costs more than $100. And, most importantly, those who bought their iPhones at an AT&T store will have to make what might be their first of many visits to an Apple Store. That is alone worth the $50 per customer this escapade will eventually cost Apple, taking into account unused credits and Apple Store wholesale costs."
