If there's one thing Apple likes to do, it's to tell everyone how awesome they are. At the beginning of every iPhone announcement, you can bet on them to give stats and metrics for at least a half hour about how they're killing the competition. But today, they used a metric that bears absolutely no validity, and thus required me ranting about it.
While Tim Cook was sharing that over 300 million iPods have been sold to date, he went on to make this comparison:
"It took Sony 30 years to sell 220,000 Walkman casette players."
Yeah. Okay. Thanks Tim. Good for you.
In other news, I've made more money in the past 5 years than I did in the previous 100 years combined.
