Windows "According to Kevin Restivo, an analyst at IDC, the countries where Windows Phone shipments exceeded those of iPhone during the fourth quarter were: Argentina, India, Poland, Russia, South Africa and Ukraine. A seventh 'country' where Windows Phone shipments beat iPhone is actually a group of smaller countries, including Croatia, that IDC lumps together in a category called 'rest of central and eastern Europe'." Not bad. Unsurprisingly, these are Nokia countries.

How? I don't understand what you are saying? How does pointing out that Google (amongst others) does not release details about how many of it's Nexus devices are shipped/sold translate into irrational hatred of Google?


Because my comment didn't mention Google, and wasn't referring to Google in any way, shape, or form. Yet, you felt the need to drag it into the mix yet again. It's almost... Compulsive.

You seem to think no data is as good or possibly better than some data.


Uh, my comment is the EXACT opposite of what you're writing here. The EXACT opposite. Here it is again:

"It's a dirty game, but at least the companies reporting 'shipped' are more honest than Apple is. It's just too bad many people fall for Apple's redefinition.

And yes, it would be great if everyone reported SALES numbers, including Apple, but they do not, and they have no obligation to do so. Even if they all did - I wouldn't trust their figures anyway. Companies are pathological liars."

We're seeing your cognitive dissonance coping strategies at work here again, live. I am fully agreeing with your position, yet it just doesn't register with you. You're so hell-bent on this delusional idea that I'm out for Apple that you conjure up all sorts of things I supposedly said.

It's... Fascinating. It truly is.
