And the personal attacks begin when logic fails. Would you care to explain why Apple can't increase production capacity? I'm sure there are more people here than just me that would like to be wowed by your business acumen.
Yes. That's what I'm saying. Part of running a successful manufacturing business is forecasting demand. Apple is second to none in running their supply chain. If they needed to make 75 million per quarter, they would have forecast that and planned for it.
It makes no business sense for any company to design a product and sit it on it for months, over the biggest selling season, while competitors continue to sell, and all the while pissing off customers who all have expectations set by rumors. Companies make things to sell them, not to sit in inventory on warehouse shelves.
