Nice try, Steve.:

Therefore, we have decided to offer every iPhone customer who purchased an iPhone from either Apple or AT&T, and who is not receiving a rebate or any other consideration, a $100 store credit towards the purchase of any product at an Apple Retail Store or the Apple Online Store.

$100 of credit at Apple is supposed to make recent iPhone buyers feel good about a $200 price drop? I mean, heck folk, at least give $100 credit at a store with stuff these guys can honestly use, like BP. This is a painful price drop for early adopters. I believe that makes me the three millionth blogger to come to this conclusion. Do I get a prize?

That said, add a mike to the iPod touch & an Apple-ized Skype and you've really got something. If Apple makes the touch into a WiFi phone, cell companies are in for it. The iPod touch's release is a real shot over the bow, not that there's anything, I'd wager, the cell phone folk on the boat can do to stop their getting boarded anyhow.

And that new nano is pretty danged cool. Impressed and envious there. It also apparently still works with Nike+ shoes (check the compatibility icons & info). Wonder if anyone would buy my old nano for more than $15...
