    I was just checking the MacRumors Buyers Guide to see if the iPod Touch was added (which it wasn't), and I noticed that it said the iPhone was "recently updated" at the Sept. 5th event. I am assuming this "update" was the iTunes WiFi Store, but does that really qualify for an "update?" I know it's a big deal, but the actual hardware wasn't updated, just the software...

    the $200 price cut and the elimination of the 4 gb model are significant enough for an update to the buyer's guide. similarly, the cinema displays last update reflect the day they dropped in price.

    I agree, it seems like only hardware updates should be considered updates

    Update was $200 drop.

    From a buying decision point of view, I think it definitely qualifies as an update.

    Although you might want to consider putting the same disclaimer that you put on the Displays.

    Obviously adjust the dates and say something like it was a $200 price drop, and discontinuance of the 4GB iPhone.
