    damn. Makes sense, but I love their notebooks and computers more than their tablets and phones, so I think it's sad to see this trend.

    For the reasons outlined in that article, quarterly numbers just aren't a good basis for trends with Apple. Quarterly numbers always show extreme peaks & valleys.

    A rolling 12-month (or 4-quarter) sales report would be a much more valid picture, but those don't make for good news bites.

    Well, actually, I do. Analysts predicting the demise of Apple has been a long going trend.
