So glad I didn’t buy the iPhone when I was offered it only 3 weeks ago at the AT&T store.  Apple has dropped the price from $599 to $399, a dramatic change in as little as 10 weeks.  Every time someone would ask if I had the iPhone yet, I’d report that the fundage was low, so I’d have to wait for the price to drop.  “Scoff!” They’d say.  “Buttercups and fairies” they’d exclaim.  “You’re dreaming, rAd”.  
 Maybe so, but it looks like Jiminy Cricket was right: dreams come true.
 I’m glad I didn’t buy it.  I’d be shafted out of $200.  Which should tell you how a majority of early adopters of the iPhone feel.  Hundreds of e-mails were sent to Steve Jobs, which I’m sure contained a lot of symbols and other words that ice road truckers use.  His response is here and is well written, even though he’s only promising $100 of the $200 that was lost.Perhaps even more exciting is the opportunity to buy an iPhone without the phone (just “i”?), which now makes regular iPods “Classic” (just as was used for the Mac’s in the early 90’s).Ah, Apple.

    Just think what you can do with the extra money saved by being patient. Exactly GOD allow things to happen when his timing is right, not ours…
