That they felt the need to attack iSuppli*, instead of shrugging it off with their standard no comment stance, smacked of an Apple that has lost some of its usual unassailable confidence.
I hope that clarifies my... um, ... opinion**.
*I understand that iSuppli was not named during the conference call, but DED has chosen to reference iSuppli in his 'smackdown' piece that this thread is attached to.
**(Just in case some Defender of the Faith feels the need to attack this clarification, I use this word "opinion" to express my impression of the Apple representative's action. Note that this impression is one held by me and in no way implies that AppleInsider, nor its employees or contributors, hold any similar views. In addition, it is explicitly understood that in making my impression known, I am likely to incur the wrath of the Defenders of the Faith, otherwise known as The Faithful, and that I will likely be savaged, and reviled as the Utter Troll that they believe me to be.)
