    I got mine 19 days ago, 5 days past my opportunity to return it. This was my first Apple Product purchase, and I was following along today to see if I would be interested in a new iPod, but after learning I got screwed for $200, they can keep their new iPods. Besides, how do we know that they wont drop the price on those 68 days from now?

    i bought it 10 days ago, so i am in the clear :o

    but if you were willing to pay the $600, you should have known the price drop could occur

    I would be so pissed off if I bought this and they dropped the price so soon.

    i would have expected $100, $200 was a bit much

    i figure they captured all the "i gotta have it now" people, sales started to drop and they dropped the price to grab the "i'd get it if it were cheaper" people

    ZOMG! A manufacturer dropped the price of a consumer electronics product??? No fucking way!

    :ugh:

    I ponied up my $599 for my iPhone and I've enjoyed it every day since I got it. Today is no different than yesterday was in that regard, and I still like my iPhone. The money is spent and long gone, no point crying over it now.

    Unless of course you think it's up to corporate america to make your decisions for you. :rofl:

    kinda pisses me off, but thats what happens when you are an early adopter of electronics. I just told myself "it is what it is."

    I wonder if they just shipped a crate of iphones to the company that was going to resell them unlocked... then used that as the perfect time to drop the price that much to crush them :rofl:
