SWEET, SWEET IRONY

Apple on Thursday offered $100 rebates to people who bought iPhones for $600 in those heady first days of hype and sales -- only to see Apple slash the price by $200 this week.

But some bleeding-edge buyers don't mind paying full price for being first in line, and that's where we find the source of the day, courtesy of The Associated Press:
"If they told me at the outset the iPhone would be $200 cheaper the next day, I would have thought about it for a second - and still bought it," said Andrew Brin, a 47-year-old addiction therapist in Los Angeles. "It was $600 and that was the price I was willing to pay for it."
Having that guy as your therapist would make you take up smack again.
