iPhone Price Reduction

Post by FluteOfTheNewWorld » Thu Sep 06, 2007 6:02 pm

I really hope that no one bought an iPhone here.. they are lowering the price by 200 dollars now. That sucks sooo bad! Apple just slapped their buyers in the face. Not a wise thing to do.

Alot of people aren't happy about that... especially the investors. Apple stock dropped $7.40 a share when the cut was announced.

New technology dropping rapidly in price? Say it aint so. How could we have predicted this? It's not like this has been a trend with technology for the past ten years or anything!

Now I heard that they are going to give the 200 dollars back to all the people who bought them at the very beginning. That is awesome if they do!

i-phone price reduction

Post by baritoneplayer » Mon Sep 10, 2007 1:54 pm

It never pays to be the first to own the latest technology. Wait until the bugs are out of the product and by then the price has usually gone down.

Wasn't the iPhone released just recently? As in within the past month or so? Doesn't that mean this is rather rapid for us to be exploiting it already?
