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 .
I haven't tried Here on ios7 but (IMO) Here on WP is better than both Google maps on Android and Apple maps on iOS. As a Londoner I particularly like the internal Tube station layouts. That said, the default mapping on any OS should be the best for that OS given app integration and permissions.
What is the point of the Samsung/Google road map picture?   If Apple had invented laptops, All in Ones and OSes then it would have a degree of creditability. As it stands it is as silly as those photos that compared the original iphone to the handsets with small screens and numeric keyboards.  
In common with the vast majority of manufacturers, Apple also include units shipped to carriers that have not neccessarilly been sold on to end customers. Outside of major American cities (and perhaps even including them) I would imagine that the majority of Apple products (especially phones) are sold via 3rd party channels. It is simply incorrect to state that Apple report actual numbers.
App store usage?   Do apple mean that in the period covered 74% of devices downloading new apps were on iOS7?   If so, does that mean that an older device that hasn't downloaded any new apps for some time won't be counted?
