Apple Reduces Price of iPhone to the Same as Two Wi-Fi Enabled Linux Laptops

,----[ Quote ]
| The good news this week is that Apple reduced the price of the iPhone to the 
| same as two wi-fi enabled Linux laptops. And while cell phones are handy for 
| making calls, laptops are confined to such tasks as word processing, 
| spreadsheets, surfing the web, graphic design, web page design, VOIP, 
| multimedia creation and programming apps to run on cell phones.    


Apple tries to calm the storm down.

| the open source software projects working on versions of their software
