so the new Surface 2 is an across-the-board spec bump model (still no retina display), finally with Outlook too. they also drop the price modestly by $50 and double the freebie cloud storage to 200G. the much hyped accessory keyboards are improved too (gee i thought they were supposed to be great last year), but still not cheaper. as to apps ... well not much happening there. i guess if you already wanted one this is a very nice update. but the question MS still hasn't...
 yeah, eight articles about the new Surface! (ok there are two versions)! the lead article headline is:Surface 2 declassified: How Microsoft made Surface into the tablet the world said it wantedgush much?we can compare this with its coverage of the new iPads launch next month ...
 don't understand the question.
 of course. wider distribution should increase sales per time period if nothing else changed. the long term test is does it also increase the sales rate everywhere absolutely. we'll see. what is really happening at the moment tho is they are selling every unit the factories can crank out, plus what they could inventory in advance. that's a different factor. every company would like to have that problem.
 Apple probably figured a fresh look version of the iP 5 would sell somewhat better than just the same old thing. and normally that would be true. what may not be normal is the 5s might be a real sensation.
 no. you're making an "adjustment." but what matters in fact is the total sold in any given time period, period. for your adjustment to be valid, total sales would have to drop accordingly in the future (how long was the delay in the China sales start for iPhone 5? i dunno). either the 5s/c sell more in the last quarter of the year + 10 days of September than the same period of last year (or the same number of days after launch), or they don't. more is more (or less is less).
so when are the pundits and analysts going to realize Touch ID is a genuine "killer feature" that has just iced the sales of high-end Android phones?   Monday?
 no, 7 million would be 40% growth over last year. i know what you mean - you mean apples to apples due to sub-markets release timing. but if Apple makes a deal with China Mobile soon, as expected, that throws last year out completely as any basis for such comparison. more is more.
The 5s' Touch ID is a real "killer feature" that will impact the market strongly - because it is so convenient and consumers are getting more security conscious than ever. just about everyone that tries it wants it. sales of high end droid phones (not all the cheap stuff) are going to drop significantly immediately, and stay down until the OEM's come up with their own biometric sensors of some kind in new models. and if they don't work as instantly, easily, and reliably...
