New model about to be released and Apple send out a "Slow down" bit of software to everyone's existing Apple.. UPGRADE..
Then again, I pay a Bose a month to rent a rusty hangar older than I am that floods whenever it rains. I find that when a company gets this successful, it's usually because the price is worth it, not because they're all evil greedy capitalists.
