Apple Sells 10M iPhones. Psychopath Increases Meds.

Apple Reaches 10 Million iPhone Sales Goal for 2008

Prior screeching from demented former employee of failed cellphone OS:

Desperation? You’re the one peddling the wacky conspiracy theories to try to gloss over the apparent fact that the iPhone ain’t gonna sell no 10 million units in its first year, like Chairman Steve promised. I’m just pointing out the eighty or so reasons that they don’t hold water.

Fact is, there are a whole big bunch of iPhones sitting in inventory, on AT&T’s shelves, and elsewhere. Sales have slowed considerably, and they aren’t picking up again, even with price cuts and memory expansions. It looks very much like those first weeks (mostly media-fanned: very few people who stood in lines waiting for days to ensure that they’d get an iPhone actually needed to, they were never in particularly short supply) pretty much saturated the market for nice-looking phones that do very little at an extremely high price point. There’s a surprise.

Emphasis added by me.

Oh, and as for people standing in lines?

iDay 2008 + 1 = LONG Lines!!!
iDay 2008 +2 = Still Lines!
iDay 2008 + 8 = Apple Store Soho Line

Now let’s see the lines for that niche OS of FAIL:


The symbol of FAIL.

  1. Sounds like some hating! Let’s not be so quick to forget that nobody is spending money on much of anything right now. They could come out with an Audi A5 electric car that gets 100 miles to a charge and I couldn’t run out and get it right now. Apple just like your Palm Pre have to weather the storm of this recession. In the end, Palm is still an 8ball dangling the rim of a corner pocket with Apple paying the part of the pool stick. Bottom line, you’re either a MAC or a PC!

    If PC’s didn’t get the numerous virus that they were prone to, pushed the boundaries in cutting edge new technology, then we wouldn’t be having this conversation. Yet the tumbleweed of failure for the Palm and the PC like OS industries ironically is needed. Somebody has to be the best and somebody has to be almost as good but not really. Naw’mean!!! ?

    I lived through the personal computer revolution. All the innovation came from the Apple end, beginning with VisiCalc on the Apple II. And oddly, while people were happily using their Apples, TRS-80s, Commodores, and Ataris (yes, even online) — it took *PCs* to foster viruses and malware.
