Apple to drop support for first-gen iPhone (2G)

MacStories reports that Steve Jobs has apparently responded to a random customer's email about support for his 2G iPhone. The response was the antithesis of every corporate response email regurgitated by a mail merge machine, and simply said:

"Sorry, no.

Sent from my iPhone"

This may seem hoax-ish, but the headers don't lie. Looks like this one came right from Apple HQ. Unless someone out there is really good at spoofing email headers and is intercepting Steve Jobs' email at the same time, this is the real deal.

If you were holding back your wallet for an upgrade until now, the upcoming release of OS4 and the impending drop of support for your iPhone 2G should help ease your mind a bit.
