Much love, Saul Hansell

Ace journo from the New York Times has seen right through our iPhone price drop ploy. See here. He’s figured it out. The whole thing is about making more money and yes, as he puts it, I’m kind of crass. Money quote: “We are so used to cryptic and seemingly disingenuous communication out of Apple that we miss it when Mr. Jobs says crassly what most businessmen try to hide: Apple lowered the price of the iPhone because it wants to make lots more money by selling boatloads of them this Christmas.”

Thanks, Saul, for what I’m choosing to believe is a very positive article about me. FWIW, I loved you in Zoolander.

UPDATE: Hansell just emailed me and said, “I friggin’ worship you, man!”
