When all four major carriers in the us report that the 5s is there number one selling phone, and the 5c is number two on two carriers and number three on the other two carriers, how can Blackbook call that poor sales of the 5c?
I got the last 5c  at walmart for my daughter that they had.  They were sold out, and continue to do so on a weekly stock up basis.The 5s's are worse at walmart. When they get stock its out, by the end of the day.  At least the 5c's stay in stock for a few days.

Actually iOS is OSX.  They both run the same mach kernel, and both run the same underlying file structures. In fact iOS is built on Mac OSX.  So yes the iPad and iPhone are both good enough to be an Apple computers because they are Apple computers and are both running the same os with different gui's.  This is one reason why theres so much talk about them merging, and also why Phil Schiller said at the 5s introduction that Mac OSX and iOS share the same code base.

In a race to the bottom.
I agree, and isn't it funny how they always do quarterly studies instead of YoY, and amazingly they (IDC and Gartner) always pick Apples slowest quarter at the time right before the new product launches?  Lol coincidence, I think not.  We are like a week out of the new iMac updates so they won't factor either. The updates to the Airs have not really been out that long either. You can always count on especially  IDC for the lowest Apple estimates.  When they did tablets a...
