I just heard the geniuses on CNBC regurgitating the "Hummer of smart Phones" headline on their network - as if iPhone users are personally burning through our "precious data supply," and linking it to the other headline about Sony Walkmans outselling iPods for a brief period.
All kinds of gloom and doom talk followed, none of which mentioned,
a) the iPod figures for Japan did NOT include iPhone sales, and every iPhone as everyone here knows IS an iPod, nor
b) that the proper view is that Apple is the first company to deliver a PC equivalent quality experience on the net on a phone, not that it's a "data guzzler" - i.e., it's the first to deliver the data people expect at a speed they can live with (if their carrier can only keep up!).
I'm surprised they didn't talk about having to import data from hostile nations......
Talk about shallow!! These talking heads are moving markets - if they're that far off on stories even a casual hobbyist like me can see through, are they that far off on most or all stories.
