So another analyst thinks they increased sales! I'd be surprised if sales dropped as much as the other report (http://www.macrumors.com/pages/2006/12/20061212115708.shtml) said they did. What with adding movies and such, I can't imagine iTunes lost momentum. It will be interesting to hear from Apple.

The idiots either maliciously or ignorantly reported a drop in the "rate" of growth for a drop in the ACTUAL growth. This is serious since it hit Apple investors... there is nothing to stop these dingbats from incorrect reporting but it is irresponsible. The Register, like CNet and ZD Net often hype anti-Apple material -- no idea why they love to bash the company as I am sure they probably use Apple products, as in iPods!
