    No, it doesn’t. They had already done that before hitting 300,000. Or, maybe before hitting 250,000. The point is that 300,000 isn’t some magic number that makes something true.

    It might be accurate to say “_Note_ that in a little more than two years, Apple has created one of the most population [sic] application platforms of all time.”

    “That means” is a poor choice of words here. Aren’t journalists supposed to be word smiths of at least some quality and thought?
