Strange Little Bird: Uncle Steve Robbed Me!
---

Uncle Steve Robbed Me!

Dear Steve,

Let me begin by telling you how much I love my iPhone. It is indeed the coolest gadget I have ever beheld. I have enjoyed my iPhone for all of the 31 days I have owned it.

Until today.

You see, today I read that you thought it was best (best for your sales, I’m sure) to make the iPhone more “affordable,” so the price has been lowered by $200. Now I was never great at math, but I’m pretty sure that’s a 33% decrease in price. And it’s only been out for two months.

Now Steve, I must tell you how hurt and insulted I am over this. While $200 is mere chump change to you, it represents many hours of hard work for me and others like me who scrimped and saved to buy the shining end-all-be-all of toys. I am aware that I deemed the iPhone to be worth $600 when I bought it, so I am responsible for the twist in my panties.

But you suck. You owe me $200. I am [was] a loyal Apple customer who had faith in you and your company’s brilliant products. Faith that you wouldn’t screw me.

So, shame on me for trusting in The Man. Shame on you for becoming him.

Sincerely,

SLB
