Do you really want to pay $200 more?

with 3 comments

I usually don’t delve into topics outside AIR, Flash, or Flex on this blog, but I just cant resist. To preface this, I am a very happy iPhone owner. The iPhone is missing a few features, but overall it is the best device I have ever used. Yesterday, Apple decided to drop the price by $200 to $399. And in celebration of this, all I see today is posts about how pissed off iPhone users are. Here is my statement to you: Get over it! I am sure that if you really want to, Apple will be happy to accept an extra $200 from you while making any future iPhone purchases.

Anyways, if you want see something else related to this whole debacle that will give you a good laugh, check out this article about how Apple and Nokia are trading barbs using AdWords.

  2. There is an open letter to all iPhone owners from Steve Jobs on the Apple site that owners can get $100 store credit to a future purchase at the Apple store. I think this is far better than an other company would have done.

    Although I’m tempted to contact Samsung and see if I can get the price difference on my two 21″ LCD’s that I bought and can now find for many hundreds of dollars cheaper. :)

  3. I still don’t understand why everyone is so upset. I read an article yesterday that said: “If you felt the iPhone wasn’t worth $600, then you shouldn’t have purchased one. Welcome to supply and demand people.” I think that sums it up quite nicely. I’d be a tad upset about paying that much, but I’d be a lot happier knowing I had an iPhone.
