Apple cuts 8GB iPhone price to $399 – Engadget

And people are pissed off about it! And I’m pissed off at these people!

The same brainwashed idiots who stood in line two months ago to get a goddamned iPhone are now bitching about the price drop, whining about resale value and how they feel “insulted”. Forums are abuzz with angry socialites who somehow feel entitled to a $200 refund. If it was worth $599 to you back then, why is it suddenly worthless today ?

To me, a person that stands in line for hours to buy an overpriced cell phone is an icon of ridicule. It’s a phone, you use it to talk to people. The fact that they add a functional web browser and a touch-sensitive interface is just gravy. It’s a phone. It does the same things as my stinky Audiovox that I got for free when I signed up for Bell’s $30 plan eight years ago, only the iPhone does them prettier.

Get a life, kids! In the words of Tyler Durden, You are not your fucking phone! You bought it the day it was out, and had two months to jerk off to its smooth curves and spray your dirty smug all over your amazed friends’ eager faces. Now shut up and take it like an adult. You didn’t lose $200 today, your phone still works the same as it did yesterday. The only reason you Apple fanboys whine about resale value is because you’ve never had any concept of value to begin with. Computers can’t have much resale value when the newer, faster units with a full warranty are cheaper than last year’s model. Apple is overpriced, and a 400mhz G4 is NOT worth $500 in 2007. How about I give you a case of Michelob and a kick in the nuts ?

    Well said Bill! Fuck whiners. You’re not how much money you have in the bank. You’re not the car you drive. You’re not the contents of your wallet. You’re not your fucking khakis!!! 😀
