I don't care about the Apple TV. I don't care about the iPhone because I can't get Cingular service in my area (and, from what I have heard, they suck lately anyway). And how does "approval takes two months" mean June anyway?
But mainly I'm deeply disapopinted that the iPhone is available only for Cingular. Apple could have sold a trillion unlocked units at $799 or probably even $999. Instead, people are somehow forced to decide between what I agree is a truly revolutionary phone and their current contracts, network coverage, etc.? Why not let all the carriers sell the phones and sell them with their own contract extensions or agreements. Why go "long-term" and "exclusive" with Cingular???
Total out of pocket today and, aside from iWork and iLife upgrades I suspect we'll see soon, total in the next six months: $0.
