Apple has decided not to share sales numbers for iPhone, iPad, and Mac in quarterly financial results. Since then, the stock market– led by Apple– has taken a dive. Wil on Mac360 has a look at the future of such guesstimates.
We certified Apple Watchers ™ have been able to skewer the likes of insightless tech writers and their ilk, and hang Gartner and IDC and others out to dry for the misdeeds of inaccurate numbers, we now have to rely on the unreliable. That means ever increasing headlines which decry how Apple’s various hardware products are doing in the market. Guesstimates will rule and that means product prognostications are about to enter a new era where anything numerical will be treated as fact, even in publications that decry fake news, but harbor fake outrage.
The whole world is becoming The Onion.
