He said that OS X use has gone from 25 million three years ago to 75 million. Not that they sold 50 million machines during that time.
As I said, 3 years ago it was estimated that there were about 40 million Macs out there, many of them not yet on OS X.
Even with a fair number of those people buying new machines and getting rid of the old, with many upgrading to OS X over that time, along with new sales of over 30 million, I can see the number of 75 million OS X users.
Besides, the numbers with the iPhone AND the iPod Touch, which runs the same OS as the iPhone added into the mix, that would give us a lot more than 75 million OS X users.
A good number of the 40 million, plus the over 30 million in new sales, plus the over 40 million in iPhone and iPod Touch sales.
How would you reconcile those numbers?
