iPhone Users Pissed about Price Redux: Apple Offers Credit & Apology

I don't really think iPhone buyers have the right to be pissed about the cost coming down on iPhones. You wanna be an early adopter, you pay the price. You had to be the first, the coolest, the braggart, there's a cost for that. I'm jus' sayin'...

(09-06) 14:12 PDT CUPERTINO -- Apple CEO Steve Jobs, who was flooded with e-mails from angry customers after the company lopped $200 off the price of the iPhone just two months after its debut, on Thursday apologized to early buyers and offered them a $100 credit.

In an open letter on Apple's Web site, Jobs said that even though price drops are a reality in the personal technology world, the company was going to make sure it took care of its existing customers, even as it pursued new users with the iPhone's aggressive price reduction.

"We want to do the right thing for our valued iPhone customers," Jobs wrote. "We apologize for disappointing some of you, and we are doing our best to live up to your high expectations of Apple."

IPhone buyers will be eligible for a $100 credit good toward the purchase of any product at any Apple store or at Apple's online store. Jobs said more details will be released next week.

Agreed. I bought an Iphone day two. And now because some people can't figure out how technology is priced, I'm getting a 100$ credit too?

Thanks Steve, I ain't complaining. This contraption has already paid for itself.
