    Does anyone know at what point combined smartphones (e.g. iOS + Android) outsold PCs?

    Keep in mind that the average selling price of a PC is less than $400 (and that includes all the macs), the average selling price of an iPhone is above $600.

    Yes, there's this place called the enterprise,( noun  /?ent?(r)?pra?z/)

    Where business productivity goes to die.

    They saw it coming.  They tried to succeed in mobile, but they ended up like a deer in the headlights.

    Remember; in the PC market Windows only succeeded because it democratised Apple's designs. In the mobile market Google beat them to it.

    The first product strategy left customers with junk on their desktops, the second with junk in their pockets.

    Ballmer, and Microsoft in general, consistently think inside the box.

    But but but...Apple should have reached that mark last year. Sell!

    Seriously, I wonder which made more revenue and profit. That would be an interesting number!

    An Magic Mouse probably makes more more for Apple than a typical PC sale makes for whatever OEM you care to mention I'd imagine. LOL

    A very small box it is too.
