The article discusses the other side of Apple's success. Apple Chief Steve Jobs reduced the iPhone's price to $400 from $600, making early buyers furious. An apology and a $100 gift certificate had been issued by Jobs to contain the damage. But the company's other constituents will not be so easily appeased. Wall Street smelled weakness in the price cut and pushed Apple shares down 10% to $130 within two days.
