    1. Oh, yeah, I think they did.

      And when I look at this to see if there is any growth potential for the iPhone in the US, it looks to me like there is room to double their market share (at the expense of everyone else). So why are analysts saying the iPhone growth has peaked? This market is far from saturated… at least with REAL iPhones.

    2. IDC and Gartner only look forward, never do they issue reports that compare how their forecasts turn out.

      You know people actually pay these clowns for their opinions for prognostication.

    1. Is that you Marco Rubio? Thanks for pointing out Trump’s tiny hands. Lately, it seems he is concentrating too much on the size of his little pony. I’m looking forward to hear my President Trump give daily briefings about how well he shook the dew off his lilly. Was it one shake, or two shakes, or maybe even more than ten shakes?!? Wow, the thought of it is getting me very excited. Maybe that’s why I stare into oblivion.
