Apple passes Microsoft

A symbolic moment, this: in Q4 2013 the number of computers* sold by Apple was larger than the number of Windows PC sold globally. If you add Windows Phone to the mix they’re more or less exactly equal.

Microsoft spent so much time laughing at Apple. Not any more.

    You overestimate Microsoft’s connection to reality if you think they’re done laughing.

      Lol.

      Well, Ballmer is gone.

    Not a good comparison if you don’t count all of microsoft’s offerings, like their tablets and phones if all iphones and ipads are grouped into Apple’s metric.

      In the comments, the author said he did include all tablets and phones running Windows.

    Some of the comments on that post indicate mild dementia. As though a comparison between Apple and Microsoft was somehow meant to disparage Android.

    • gjgustav

      Fandroids can’t stand it when people aren’t talking about Android.

        Apparently. The number of times Evans had to point out they’d missed the focus of the article was stupefying.

          Trolls will troll. :)

            Sure, but it seems like more than that. As though Evans had said “dad never really loved you” or something.

            lol.

            I don’t want to get started so have no interest in reading and battling the trolls. :) Will just take your word for it.
