+ - Apple Bends to the iPhone Plankowners->

Submitted by Rentiak
Rentiak (835443) writes "Early iPhone users have gotten a door prize from Steve Jobs this week. In the wake of the 2007 keynote address that launched the new iPod touch and dropped the price of the iPhone by $200 early adopters have been upset that the price has dropped so soon. After addressing these concerns to Apple an open letter was posted on Apple.com addressing anyone who owns an iPhone already. As a concession Apple will be providing a $100 store credit (online or in store). Now you can buy those 100 songs you've always wanted to play on your expensive iPhone."

This should help quell the bad press that early adopters of the iPhone have been generating, and is a sign that Apple does listen to, and value, its customers."

In an open letter to iPhone customers, Steve Jobs has announced that Apple will give $100 credits in Apple stores for future purchases to those who paid $599 for the 8GB iPhone. You must not have received any other consideration (as some reported they have) to qualify."

Journal: Will the Wii's Success help Playstation 3? 2

Journal by fistfullast33l

The Wii currently is the hottest item on the block. You can't find it in stores at all and it's all the rage on the internets.

Submitted by
An anonymous reader writes "It seems like Asus has recently been inspired by what nature has to offer judging by its latest laptop designs. The Asus EcoBook comes with real bamboo panelling and will be available early next year. "Making a laptop out of wood doesn't sound all that sane a project, but we should probably get accustomed to this sort of thing — Asus has already delivered the first leather-bound laptops, and Tulip does a range of crazy laptop skins for its Ego range." All I can say is watch out for pandas."

black hair need a visit from the health inspector. I bet they might even have rats. Their shrimp in a basket with black veins unremoved and underfried went directly to the trash but were photographed and time and date documented. The receipt was paid and saved for posterity. Make they choke on the polite, AMPLE tip I paid them for delivering the food and may they have a panic attack when they read about it in the newspaper. Maybe one of them had severe PMS or their period that day or a midl
