BBspot - Jobs Offers Apple Lisa Early Adopters Store Credit

by Volker Weber

Cupertino, CA – Early adopters of the iPhone weren't the only ones receiving in-store credit from Steve Jobs. In an overlooked announcement, Jobs said that early adopters of the Apple Lisa would be receiving a $7000 in-store credit. ... Sales figures from that year show that if all people who bought the computer claim the refund, Apple could be liable for almost $70,000.Apple representatives said that consumers shouldn't expect a refund every time a product bombs or prices drop. These two cases were the "exception rather than the rule."

That is priceless. Any chance it will be extended to the Newton? Or the 20th Anniversary Mac? :-)

... gab es wirklich nur 10 Käufer einer LISA? Oder ist das mit den 70.000 US-$ eine falsche Zahl???
