This is rich. People go absolutely gaga over this Iphone thingy, lining up to buy the things like it was the last chance in life to ever buy a phone… and now they’re bent out of joint because Apple cut the price of the thing after they bought theirs?
Ok, I don’t like having something like that happen any more than anyone else does. But at the same time doesn’t a business have the right to reach a decision to drop a price? I am not a hamster, I thought cutting prices was good. That’s one of the reasons that I rarely (if EVER) get in on buying some new thing when it first comes out. Most of the time I prefer to wait until A, the bugs get worked out of the early models and B, the price comes down.
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) – Apple Inc. (AAPL) CEO Steve Jobs apologized and offered $100 credits Thursday to people who shelled out up to $599 for an iPhone this summer and were burned when the company chopped $200 from the expensive model’s price.
