Apple Apple reported its quarterly results, and thanks to the iPhone 4S and the iPad, Apple is putting out bizarre figures - 37 million iPhones, 15.5 million iPads. "The Company sold 37.04 million iPhones in the quarter, representing 128 percent unit growth over the year-ago quarter. Apple sold 15.43 million iPads during the quarter, a 111 percent unit increase over the year-ago quarter. The Company sold 5.2 million Macs during the quarter, a 26 percent unit increase over the year-ago quarter. Apple sold 15.4 million iPods, a 21 percent unit decline from the year-ago quarter." Is this the end of Android's dominance, or just a single uberquarter due to the new iPhone?

Despite his size the basketball player Dennis Rodman led the league in rebounds for seven years straight. But I think he was just very lucky to be standing where the ball fell and the other hundreds of NBA players just were unlucky... for seven years in a row.

In any team sport success depends on the skill of colleagues and the strength of opponents. Much of Rodman's success can be credited directly to his team mates.

Which included 3 different teams in that 7 year span, so he was on a very lucky streak regarding both rebounds and team mates.
