You know, hearing all the moaning and groaning about the iPhone price drop made me think of a parable that Jesus told and is written in Matthew 20:1-15, I will post a link if you would like to read it. It is a quick read.

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew 20:1-15;&version=50;

The gist is this:
Dude 1 gets hired in the morning to work in a vineyard
Dude 1 agrees to be paid a set amount of money ( 1 denarius )
Dude 2 gets hired in the afternoon
Dude 2 agrees to be paid a set amount of money ( 1 denarius )
At the end of the day, Dude 1 and Dude 2 get paid the same and Dude 1 thinks he should be paid more, even though Dude 1 is the one to set the original price.
Moral of the story: You agreed to a price (regardless of what that price is) and just because someone else gets paid more, or buys something cheaper does not mean your entitled to anything different than what you originally agreed too.

You have got to be kidding me. Using the Bible to defend Apple?
I knew Apple was Satan! (The Bible says Satan knows the Bible the best)

One time i put a wwjd bracelet on my jewish friends wrist, it burned his skin. He threw it on the ground and it turned into a snake. We both laughed. We think snakes are slimy, even though we know they're not.---Daniel tosh
