iDrop

Two months after the  iPhone is released to overwhelming hype success Steven Jobs dropped the price by $200. Yikes. That's right $200 dollars.

So Steve has posted an open letter to all iPhone users about how basically this is great for Apple and the coming Christmas buying season. Also how there will always be people who buy a product before a certain price drop and those who are eternally waiting for the next one. But they are going to give iPhone early adopters $100 Apple store credit to make up for it.

CNet's Molly Wood goes off pretty hard on the price drop on last Thursday's epside of Buzz Out Loud.

Thank god that there are people like Leo Laporte that drive down prices for the rest of us. Usually right after he buys a product, you know there's going to be a price drop. Thanks Leo.

And finally, does anyone else think it strange that you can order the new Nano's on Apple's Canadian site when all the Canadian outlets are only allowing you to pre-order for the end of the month?

The New iWant

Well they're here. The much rumored iPods were unveiled today during an Apple event by our good friend Steve.

I followed the live feeds from ARS Technica and Engadget and it was nice they were both sitting on opposite sides of the hall so that their photos were from different angles. It was appreciated. Thanks guys.

I really like the Nano price point at $169 (that's Canadian) for the 4GB model. If the Nano was out a year ago I would have totally bought the Nano. But now with the release of the Touch I don't know what to think. Of course the $329 price tag for the 8GB and $449 for the 16GB one put the breaks on me pre-ordering it.

Sure it's innovative to buy tracks over wi-fi and surf the net, it's just too bad you can't squirt songs.

So you can get songs at Starbucks and surf for free and that's really cool too. Except I don't drink coffee and there are only two Starbucks that I know of in my town. On the other hand maybe this could be proof that my three year old son has psychic powers and had predicted this union by telling me he wants us to stop everyday at Starbucks for the past month when we past it on the way home from his daycare.

And the recent addition of iTunes Plus and the lack of the dreaded DRM, the iPod is starting to look very attractive.

There's a pretty thorough walk through on the Apple site of what the new iTouch… I mean iPod Touch can do. Oh come on, you know everyone is going to be calling it that.

Very nice Steve.

Now where the hell is my full Beatles catalog?
