HTC is trying for a few weeks lead before the Samsung S5 juggernaught rolls into town, that's all they've got, maybe a few switchers two years after the S3 launch.I attended the S5 launch on Tuesday night, the same day HTC launched the M8.Pre sales started today for the S5, about a week ago for the M8.
Six to seven million iPhones sell over the first three days.Fifty or so million a quarter with staggered international launches.Apple is on a completely different level to anyone else.
 Certainly not the very small subset which is 'NYT Bestsellers'.
 There are a lot whose contract expiry dates coincide with iPhone launch dates, millions of contracts restart at that time.
 It's 50 million less than the 200 million bandied about in this thread. 150 million vs 430 million iPhones sold over the same timeframe.
 It might help if they had a marketing budget of $14 billion, like Samsung.
Go into a bookstore, if you can still find one, look at the back cover of the book for the recommended price, it is what publishers started charging when free to set their own prices for eBooks.Coincidence?I think not!
Perhaps as a punishment for standing up to City Hall, a warning to others who pursue their rights."We will make shit up to find you guilty."
They aren't, they are a retailer paying out the publisher's settlement to their customers.
Does Google set the prices?No.Just like Apple.Google wanted to steal author's works and give them away for free.
