  As a British-born 69-year-old writer, former publisher and editor, my experience of the word "math" is that it is primarily American. When I see it used in print, or hear it on British radio and TV, it is used only by Americans. "Maths" (as in the short form of mathematics) is always used in Britain, and also appears to be used primarily in the rest of the English-speaking world. However, language changes with time... but another word spelling increasingly used by...
"...900,000 Surface tablets were sold in the fourth quarter"   Can you imagine the gushing press conference when they reach the magic 1 million!  ;~)

Jeez... next thing my girlfriend* will want something that pushes iPhone alerts to her personal vibrator!   * Thank goodness my wife would never want such a gadget.
Quote from the article: "...the yacht, named "Venus,..."   English schoolboys in the '50/60s used to sing...   "Twas on the good ship Venus, By God you should have seen us, The figurehead was a pro* in bed, And the mainmast was a penis."   * "pro" is English for a prostitute, or hooker on your side of the pond.   Can't remember any more verses... but I'm glad Starck stuck to his tried and tested modern-minimalistic design style for the yacht.  
Kasper quoted... "Of those 2.6 million (China) sales, Apple accounted for 71.4 percent... SNIP... while Apple's rival Samsung came in fourth with 3.5 percent of tablet sales."   Is this Samesung's "China Syndrome" ?  
  OK... I get it, so will pander to your "across the pond" sense of *humor  ;~)   *Note American spelling of humour.
"We are now designing, researching, and/or implementing corrective actions..."   I didn't realise the words "designing" and "researching" were in Samescum's vocabulary. Is this a first?  
Korean company Samescum thinking... ah-so, HTC licence Apple patents, so now we copy Taiwanese company HTC... therefore no problem from Apple!  
  I remember it well... she replied, "If you've got the money!"
