Apple "Starting today, Walmart has dropped prices on both the iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S, with the 16 GB iPhone 5 now on sale for just $127 and the iPhone 4S coming in at $47." I'm sure a 33% price cut right ahead of the holidays is totally normal for a product of which demand outstrips supply. Right?

Any device that can run Angry Birds is a luxury item.


The term "luxury" implies some sort of exclusivity or prestige. Something (iPhone) that is owned by millions of teenagers isn't exclusive. The iPhone should be considered an expensive mass produced device rather than a luxury device.
