    Of course, I'm sure they won't honor my Macintosh XL purchase. This is egregious, I tells ya!

    Of course, this could really bankrupt the company.

    I know someone who still has a Lisa in working condition. Its probably worth more than $7000 as a collector's item! :eek:

    Actually, a better argument could probably be made for this than the iPhone rebate.

    I mean, product cycle were a lot longer in the Lisa days than now. Anyone buying an iPod, iPhone or any electronic device should have no expectation that that will be the latest thing for any longer than 5-10 business days. After two weeks, it's fair game to update, price drop, etc.

    In the Lisa's day, you had a good 12-18 months, EASY.

    Ah, the young and innocent. Stay away from old guys that ask you to star in their "movie".

    That's a pretty clever joke, but The Onion would have written it funnier.
