Steve Jobs is a very smart and powerful businessman. So did he purposely bite his tongue last week when he announced a $200 iPhone price cut -- just two months after launching the product? Was it a plot to steer additional hype toward the iPhone so the new iPods wouldn't steal all the thunder? Did he plan all along to offer store credit to those who shelled out $600 for an iPhone? Was Master Steve just looking for an excuse to write a sappy love letter to Apple fanboys and girls the world over? Does anybody even care?

As promised in the letter, Apple is now offering $100 in store credit to those who bought the iPhone at a premium.

Apple knows you love your iPhone so much that you're just dying to run back for another iGadget. You cannot, however, spend the credit on iTunes content, as indicated in the small print:
