PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless During the iPad presentation, I was rather perplexed by Apple's claim to be the largest mobile device company in the world. Apparently, I wasn't the only one scratching his head, as Nokia itself, and even the Financial Times, is calling Apple out on its juggling with figures and definitions.

does Apple even realize that portraying their users as smirking, pretentious faux-intellectuals is (while accurate) probably not the best marketing angle?

I agree with everything you wrote except this. If they can sell a computer to every aspiring pretentious faux-intellectual (being a real intellectual is far too hard), they'll easily make enough money to buy a small continent.
