For a lot of people, it was well worth standing for hours and hours on line and shelling out 600 beans for the prestige and ultra coolness of being among the first people in this solar system to have the iPhone.

Too bad they shelled out 200 more beans than the current price:
A day after it cut the price of its top-of-the-line iPhone, Apple said today that it would offer a $100 store credit to customers who had bought one at the full price of $599.

The announcement came after early adopters of the cellphone complained of the $200 cut in the price of the 8-gigabyte iPhone, only two months after it first went on sale.
So, if you're an iPhone owner and you're pissed at still being $100 down on the deal, you won't get much sympathy from Steve Jobs:
There is always change and improvement, and there is always someone who bought a product before a particular cutoff date and misses the new price or the new operating system or the new whatever. This is life in the technology lane.
Suck it up.
