At least someone on here can feel my pain haha. It seems to me that a lot of people (after reading the CNN piece) either don't care or don't mind. As a consumer, I'm outraged, period. Either Apple gives us all something for being loyal or will see another huge decrease in stock as people start to slowly move away from Apple. Now would be a great time for a competing company to come out with something new and exciting at a much lower price. Apple would have to match it (like they did with the Zune, those cowards) and be forced to live with an actual competitor.I know what you mean.
When I bought my first iMac (November 17, 1998), they offered the "five colors" iMacs on January 5, 1999, and missed the return offer by two weeks.
Next I bought my iMac G5 (December 15, 2005), they released the Intel Macs in January 2006, and missed the return offer by three days.
Then I purchased the iPhone 8GB, June 29th, and they now decide to suddenly lower the price and drop the 4GB model, it makes no sense.
I have been with Apple since 1988, and I am hoping to get a new Mac, but I am going to wait until Leopard comes out, and to see if they are going to have newer machines after the OS release. It may be a good eight or nine months before I get a new computer.
