Default Early iPhone buyers to get $100 Apple credit

A day after slashing the price of the iPhone, Apple Inc. Chief Executive Steve Jobs today promised $100 store credits to iPhone owners who had paid full price and issued a rare apology for "disappointing" some of his most ardent supporters.

Sales pooped out long before Apple or AT&T thought they would, so the discount was essential to keep sales going.

Personally I think that was Jobs said to the early adopters of the phone was correct, "This is life in the technology lane. If you always wait for the next price cut or to buy the new, improved model, you'll never buy any technology product because there is always something better and less expensive on the horizon." Early adopters always pay a higher price to say they own it, and soon afterward the price always drops. That's life. If it were me, I wouldn't have issued them the $100 store credit. They don't deserve it.

I got one of the early Treo 680 phones. Now the phone costs $150 less, but I've had the phone for about 6 months. That's the price of early adoption. The Apple customers need to get over it. They're just not used to price drops. Tough.
