The 1300$ price tag once again does the apple trade mark FlyINTheFace of
what everyone else is saying the price point. is

This may sell to a few geeks who have the cash and zeal to buy it (me for
one, i gota have this before it goes away). But Mom and pop, the folks
looking to buy a Internet Box like web tv and the other
set top boxes , are NOT going to now, or have they ever , shelled out
above a grand for the idea.

The mac suffered because of this same "fatal conciet". No,the
mass market world will not buy your insanely great box for the higher
price tag, they will go for a Mediocrley OK one for less.

Some one needs to show steve J a history book. Its fucking sad is what it
is, beauce it is a Realy Great machine he built, but once again an
Insanely Stupid price point.

I hope he drops the price FAST, I realy would hate to see Apple get this
far along and mung it up again.
