Slow news? Not in the least

Well, I said earlier it was a slow news day. 

But slow isn't the way to describe Apple sales over the last little while. Up 60% over the last year, says Apple Insider.

If these numbers are accurate, this is the first time in a long, long time that Mac sales have been in the double digits. 

And we're approaching the optimal number quite quickly. 20% is the perfect market share for Mac. Big enough to be comfortable, small enough to keep them hungry. We most certainly don't want to see Macs in a market-leading position. Where's the underdog status? The indie chic? 

I want the Mac market just big enough so Intuit puts out a Canadian version of Quickbooks for Mac. Then I'll be happy.
