Multiple-choice question: Possible Reasons Apple Can Use to Justify Knocking $200 off the Price of the $600 iPhone

1. "Technological advancements" in the last 60 days have resulted in the company being able to fabricate the product at 60% of the original cost, thus maintaining the competitive, yet certainly not price gouging profit margin.

2. Original patent-holder accidentally misspelled surname on filing, allowing Apple to scoop the patent and avoid a pesky lawsuit.

3. Didn't think thousands of iSheep would emerge from euphoric state to notice the 33% price cut.

4. Hey, look! Is that Elvis over there?


More on this story, and ensuing "I'm sorry honey, it won't happen again" back-pedaling here. Also, I'm not bitter; by the time it's sold in Canada, I might be able to afford it and the ridiculously expensive rate plan required to operate it.

Frankly, I have no idea why anyone would want one. But then I don't even own an iPod, so who am I to comment.

Keep your existing phone and just buy the iPodtouch

Goodness, even at the reduced price I don't think it is worth it.

Get a Blackberry. Those work in Canada. And atop Pike's Peak, actually.
