The thing that nobody even tries to explain is, how can traffic per hour be up but total iPads (retina+mini) sold be down? Can't say that's because mini is out of stock because they aren't (at least the 32G/64G ones).
Instead of being worried about the Mac sales or laughing at MSFT, I'm definitely more worried about the iPad sales figures.
