This week, Apple announced the iPod Touch, while new iPod Nanos and "Classics" hit stores. More controversially, the company slashed the price of its iPhone by $200, enraging early adopters (until they were promised a $100 Apple credit). Those new Nanos sure are cute, but they didn't stop Apple's stock from taking a nosedive — from just over $145 on Tuesday to just over $130 today. It seems like everyone has something to say about Apple this week. And we don't just mean bloggers and journalists: we've never seen such crazy "comments" sections. After the jump, we've compiled some non-professional views from around the Web, and we invite you to contribute your own.
After the rebate announcement:
"It's like I've been stabbed in the back by my best friend and now he's apologizing… I'll take the 100 bucks, be happy and never speak of this, but I'll never trust him again." on the Unofficial Apple Weblog
Compared with the new iPod Classic:
"The touch is incredible and I want one, but I won't be upgrading to it due to the capacity. I have a 60GB 5G and a Nano which I share with my wife who has a 30GB 6G. The new ones offer nothing. The touch has the screen but no capacity. The classic is exactly what I have now." on Mac World
On Apple's tanking stock price:
"I think the people bailing on the stock are making a big mistake. The people that I know that own [an iPhone] just love it." on NYTimes.com
It's been a busy week for Apple. What do you think of the developments?
