Fair point about Sky Go, I am not a customer so I hadn't considered it. I can see that it would be of benefit in a multi TV house with only one Sky box but I can see Sky being concerned about losing out on all those subscriptions in multi TV/ multi Sky box homes.
 There-in lies the problem with definitions, they seem to shift over time. Whilst language is supposed to be dynamic it increases the scope for people to wilfully adapt their definition to suit their argument. If we take the term smartphone for example, what does that mean? Gartner, for example, class Symbian as being a smartphone platform.  A common pre-requisite seems to be internet connectivity but this could imply email access rather than web access, and then how do we...
 Whilst overlooking the fact that internet enabled phones probably surpassed the number of PCs long before the iPhone was even released. IMO the primary objective for Evans posting his cherry picking article was self-promotion. Well it certain garnered him a lot of column inches.
I wouldn't hold too much store by the rumoured 50%.  Whilst it sounds impressive it translates to 6.5m sales throughout the period and doesn't take into account the myriad of other streaming devices such as smart TVs, STBs and games consoles (which quite frankly would dwarf Apple TV) . Frankly I am not sure that AppleTv does have potential global reach. The discussions thus far have been very US centric and the American TV consumption model may well be very different from...
if the purpose of the article (by including phones) is to show that MS's dominance has been usurped then surely it is Android that has taken the crown rather than MS's older adversary?   Or is the total of Android devices (phones, tablets, notebooks, watches, cars, media players, etc) lower?   And in light of the fact that most market analysts, such as Gartner, include Symbian as a smartphone then I guess it is possible that MS haven't been dominant for over 10 years. 
Am I missing something?   If it was supposed to be unearthed in the year 2000, then why did they print "2003- time tube" on it?   http://www.postindependent.com/csp/mediapool/sites/dt.common.streams.StreamServer.cls?STREAMOID=kNRyG1w4FOaVrdiQ7$xJ$c$daE2N3K4ZzOUsqbU5sYsOrGBwhNHzBUWaZrupndc0WCsjLu883Ygn4B49Lvm9bPe2QeMKQdVeZmXF$9l$4uCZ8QDXhaHEp3rvzXRJFdy0KqPHLoMevcTLo3h8xh70Y6N_U_CryOsw6FTOdKL_jpQ-&CONTENTTYPE=image/jpeg
 ? And when was that or are you going to play semantics where you shift the definition of modern laptop to meaning a "modern laptop made by Apple"   The silly picture from DED shows the Air and Pro. At the time of release the Air was neither thinner or lighter than other laptops that preceded it.  Thinkpads predated the ibook by 7 years,  Sony's X505 from 2004 is lighter than Apple's (2008+) Air and only slightly thicker. Both devices look like a laptop to me. And, from...
 TBH I don't know if the unique ID is permanently tagged to a device or if, for example, it changes when a device is reset or the OS is wiped and a new OS installed. I do know that the danger is that that it cannot discriminate between new purchases and warranty replacement devices. Never-the-less, whilst Apple's sales figures may (or may not be) more accurate than anyone else's it remains the case that no firm is able to accurately report sales to the public. TBF to Apple...
 
what do you expect me to link to? ALL OEMs sell to channels, none know exactly when those channels have sold a device. Apple can report sales through their own outlets, they can report orders placed by resellers but they cannot say how many units have been sold to end users. if you want to believe otherwise then go ahead, also feel free to believe that the earth is flat and that fairies live at the foot of your garden .
