Yes, I finally broke down and bought an iPhone – on August 8, which inconveniently for me is outside Apple’s 14-day price protection guarantee. That means I paid $600 a month ago for what costs $400 now.
But I’m not really upset, honest. Every single time I get a phone call, I feel a zing of excitement because Apple did the experience right. And, as John Gruber wrote:
(And for those of you who’ve already bought one and are pissed about the price cut, if you didn’t think the iPhone was worth $599, you shouldn’t have bought it. That’s how supply and demand works.)
My other favorite quote of the day is from poster “bdkennedy1” on Macworld’s forums:
I swear, Steve could stick a touch-screen on a toilet brush for $900 and someone would buy it and whine.
Toilet touch! It’s so crazy, it just might work.
