Apple Offers $100 Credits to iPhone Buyers
Apple is giving a $100 store credit to early adopters of the iPhone in light of the $200 price reduction. The credit applies to the Apple online store or their physical stores, but not the iTunes store. This places early iPhone customers in the position to buy more Apple products to see their credit. This is very convenient for early adopters if they are planning to buy additional Apple equipment, which is, coincidentally, very convenient for Apple. If not, as Steve Jobs said in a heavily publicized USA Today interview, "[W]ell, that's what happens in technology." Yeah. Imagine how the people who bought these things on eBay must feel.
The moral: wait a couple of months before buying and you might get a pleasant surprise, or, buy immediately and wait a couple of months and you might get an unpleasant surprise.
