    Not that Adrian's blog is a rant or anything, but can I sum up the ZDNet take on
    the iPhone credit debaucle.

    The iPhone was too expensive. The iPhone is now too cheap. Those who were
    early adopters were fools. Now our empathy with them compels us to join in their
    rage over the the price drop.

    How dare Apple produce a compelling device! How dare they commandeer mind
    share so quickly and decisively! All human life should claim the $100 store credit
    purely because of Apple's effrontery. Months of hype and hand wringing has left
    us with mental anguish. We should demand this compensation and more.

    Every day, the exhaustive effort that goes into rationalizing NOT buying an Apple
    device should be committed to journal or blog for the coming court case. The
    people vs Apple will describe the slow spiral into Apple ownership, and the
    struggle with the guilt for having betrayed our PC economy.

    In summation: for it's crimes of seducing us with seminal, touchable tech, and for
    intruding on our hobby with a well engineered commercial product, the penalty
    for this crime of passion must be harsh. Apple must be made to pay for it's
    contempt for both its customers, and indeed, even those who are not it's
    customers. My god yes! their reach really is that long!

    In this kangaroo court, anyone can weigh in as a witness. The less experience you
    have using Apple gear in a professional environment, the better.

    For haunting our dreams, and making us want them, they owe us a living.

    ZDNet is going to get a grip at some point and start realizing why you "doth
    protest so much". Why the aggressive dismissal of Apple's viability, is, in itself, the
    best barometer of its threat level.
