The latest numbers from market research firm IDC reveal that Mac sales experienced a slight year-over-year decline in the second quarter, dropping to 4.4 million from 4.8 million during the year-ago period.

Given the past 5-7 years, it's very unusual to see Apple's PC sales doing far worse than the overall PC market.

Then again, considering how Appple has been neglecting OS X for years now and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future, as well as the complete neglect all across the Apple PC product lineup - this really shouldn't come as a surprise.

If Apple doesn't care about its PC business, why should anyone else?

Releasing a new version of OS X every year is "neglect", huh? OK whatever, that remark was just an attempt to start a flame-war conversation, so i will let that one go. I will grant that Apple has not released any new hardware or upgrades to their computer hardware in years. It makes one wonder just what those thousands of people who will be working in that new soaceship headquarters will actually be doing.
