Google the King of Efficiency!

Actually I spent less than 2 minutes looking, and a couple more reading the articles. Spelling errors aren't hard to find.

To be technical tho, I'm certain Apple counted a sale for every iPad sent to ATT, Walmart, etc, whether it actually made it to an end-user's hands yet or not. These aren't all consumer purchases yet. Give it another couple of days.

Because of Apple's success compared to others in the tablet market Apple's shipments to 3rd-party retailers are sales because payment is contractually guaranteed.

Apple doesn't need to stuff a channel and can demand that if you want our product you have to pay for it up front (or within a specified time). Amazon with their Kindle are probably the only other vendor that could demand this. The reason is simple, retailers know they can move the iPad so there is no need to be weary about accepting a product they might want to return to vendor.

What I would be really interested in is sales numbers for the iPad2 now the price has been dropped. People who would settle for a new iPad2 are the ones who are more likely to buy an Android tablet but have gone for a "cheaper" iPad instead.

I know one guy in a small tech shop and he says iPad2 sales have been strong since the announcement of iPad3.

Shoot Apple could've announced 5M sold and some would proclaim it no big deal or disappointing.

If you read my post you will see I never used the word disappointing. Rather I said they are on par with expectations.

The market is currently expecting Apple to break their own record with every new iPad / iPhone release. If they failed to break their own record then that would be disappointing.

With the last iPhone, sales were at a record high as expected, but where they king-hit android sales was the very strong sales of older iPhones. That is a king-hit to a strong competitor - android phones. But a king-hit to Android tablets through sales of cheaper iPads could be a knockout blow.

I wasn't looking for anyone who misspelled a product name.

Perhaps the sender was simply bragging that he receives a Google Wage. After all they are one of the better paying tech companies, particularly when it comes to engineers.

It surely got bragged on a lot of websites (mostly with "LOL")

I had a problem switching my unlimited account from my iPad2 to the new one, so I went to my local AT&T and they fixed that. Just did a timing test over LTE here in Forest Hills NY.

You'll be interested to know that my download speed was 45,674 kps, and the upload was 13,786 kps.

These are higher speeds than I've seen reported elsewhere.
