iPhone price drops

In San Francisco today, Steve Jobs introduced new models of iPods - Yay! To me, they look cool and I can't wait to head up to my nearest Apple store to check them out.

In a surprise move at the end of his presentation, Jobs also announced a $200 price drop in the iPhone. So, there is no more excuse for you out there on the fence thinking about getting this nifty device. Now, there is some considerable whining out there in some areas of Apple nation. There's this post: "Apple screwed you: So now what?"

Some people out there who stood in line in late June for this thing are talking about how to get refunds. "The early adopter tax" one person is calling it. All I have to say is this: Stop the whining!

Just admit that you had an urge to get the hottest piece of tech out there and told yourself you had to have it. I bought mine about a month ago and I don't think Apple screwed me with the price. If I thought it was too expensive then, I just wouldn't have bought the thing. Gimme a break!

Like anything really, if you wait a little while the price will eventually go down...people who are complaining are just dense. They knew when they bought it that it was going to pricey and that most likely the price would go down, especially as new editions and such started to come on the market. Look at the Ipod and how much it has changed over the few years it's been on the market.

Wow. I missed this in my quick scan of the Jobs announcement. Just Saturday I was asked to please stop drooling on an iPhone at the nearby Apple Store.

Now I HAVE to get the Mrs. one for her birthday.

Oh, and I'm going to buy Steve a new shirt. One in color. And maybe a different pair of pants. And I think I'll send him a dirty pair of shoes. Maybe some Tevas.

I just saw this. If you really want a cheaper iPhone, click here for a $299 "clearance" 4GB model - while supplies last!
