    Effort to reduce demand for limited initial supply?

    Desire to move current stocks of previous capacity at expense of customer backlash?

    Operant conditioning to eliminate "early adapters"?

    Or just another crazy Apple rumor?

    I'm going to Crazy Apple Rumor for now. If there's going to be another price drop it will come in the summer, I think.

    ...then again, the first price drop hit me like a ton of bricks

    I wouldn't be surprised if there were a price drop. Prices always drop. I still don't understand why this makes everyone so cranky.

    It only makes people who paid the high price cranky. And they usually don't drop this fast.

    Its' a departure from Apple's standard practice of keeping premium prices, with some price cuts much later down the line.

    Apple is just following the market and cutting prices to get marketshare (along with putting out cool devices).
