And the conclusion is..... "I have no blessed idea".

It actually is a pretty reasonable article about all of the numbers that came out in the past week.

Not much different then the "analysts" here who just make them up. "Let's say" and "Assuming..." posts posing as information were pretty funny.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

My guess on all this is that Apple manufactured some impressive number of phones for the initial launch, and they're just waiting for those phones to be all sold before they announce that they've sold that impressive number of phones. They probably had the press release written before the launch and just need to fill in the date when the number gets hit. Everyone will focus on the impressive number and it won't make much difference if it was done in 2 days, 7 days, 10 days 14 days or 30 days.

They will probably have to say something later this month when they release their quarterly results and give future guidance.

That's as good or better a guess as any I've seen. Makes a lot of sense. Apple gets to spin as much or as little, and the number will be impressive anyway, compared to any cellphone launch.
