Lenovo, HP and Dell don't make Windows.  Windows is winning in its game, which is generating profit from software ubiquity.  Apple is winning its game, which is generating profit from hardware.  Windows seems to be winning less than it was last year, and Apple is winning more, but they're both still winning.
But you still have the contract and have to pay the monthly fee, right?  I'm sure your carrier won't be overjoyed that you won't be racking up any additional charges, but you still have to pay the charge that you committed to, which includes as part of the package the phone repayment, line rental, and some kind of call/sms/data bundle, right?  So they're not especially out of pocket.  Or have I misunderstood something? If there's a threat that a customer might throw...

 Very good!
No, it is not incorrect.  Data is an unusual case where it can be either a count noun or a mass noun, because of the way usage of the word has shifted.   http://www.quickanddirtytips.com/education/grammar/is-data-singular-or-plural   So common use allows for both forms, but within the sciences, and in a stricter world, "data suggest" would be the more correct form.   http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/american_english/data   As I said, "data suggests"...
