1) Netpliance lowers the price of the i-opener from $399 to $299. (Of course we're still not down to that rock-bottom $99 price point again, but this is a move in the right direction at least, lol.)
2) There is no longer any Terms of Service which mandates an internet service contract. In other words, you can buy one of the puppies from Netpliance directly, or from a retail store, and nobody asks or cares if you will sign up for the $21.95 monthly ISP.
3) Netpliance i-openers will soon be back in stock at both Circuit City and CompUSA at the $299 price point.
Anyone have thoughts about this?
