Screwed up how? I cannot recall the last time that Apple launched a major new product with enough inventory to meet demand. Can you?
Marvin, you have made some excellent points. Keep up the good work.
Let's not talk about anecotes; let's talk about global iPhone sales. The iPhone was launched during 2007Q3. During 2007Q4, the first quarter in available for the entire quarter, Apple sold 1.12 million iPhones. During 2008Q1, the following quarter, Apple sold 2.32 million iPhones, more than double the previous quarter.

The iPhone had been the subject of rumor and speculation for months. When Steve Jobs finally introduced it, the public "got it." During the six-month interregnum between the introduction of the iPhone and the day that it went on sale, it became the subject of a pop song. In the US, the iPhone was available primarily through...
This is only true if you don't pay for the iOS version of Office. Paying the license fee enables the editing functions.
You betray a complete and total lack ignorance of statistics in general and sampling in particular. In fact, your error is a very common mistake for people who don't understand the field.For the benefit of other members of this forum, the error in the survey is determined by its standard deviation and the size on the sample. The relative sizes of the sample and the response has little to do with anything.Because you don't understand statistics, you did not know that the...
Never taken a statistics course, I see.
