I'm a big Apple supporter. This is my second imac, back in the day I had a 9600, I own an apple TV and also a (broken) 3g. I have alway been willing to get in on the launches, especially like now when I absolutely *need* the phone. It seems to me that Apple enjoys driving the early adopters crazy and believe that it feeds the hype, and to an extent it does. Except now with all of the issues and jerking around this time (not to mention apple driving up my e-book prices with their greed to get into publishing), the shiny wax has come off the Apple a little bit. Am I saying that I am going to stop buying their products now as some kind of protest? No. I am a realist and I still love the products. What I *am* saying is that I love the company a lot less than I used to, and they're starting to resemble some of the other corporations that jump the shark when they achieve success (cough, cough:Starbucks.). Apple has taken one step closer to becoming "them" and I don't think they can really go back. So I've got one eye out for the next Apple. Oh, and for people thinking that they will be able to swap a black iPhone for a white: think again. The bean counters know people will try and do this, and it will not be economically advantageous for Apple to allow it. SO don't look for any whites in the next 30 days. My bet would be more like 31 or 32 days.
