From Philip Elmer-DeWitt on Tim Culpan’s Bloomberg report of ‘falling iPad mini demand.’
First, the phrase about a decline in iPad mini revenue is not in quotation marks, suggesting that it came from the reporter, not the source.
Second, have you ever known an Apple supplier to say anything on the record about demand for any of Apple’s products? Not if he or she wants to keep doing business with Tim Cook.
In other words, the line ‘as iPad mini demand falls‘ is made up; titillating conjecture, but not fact.
