Why even post something so laughably wrong?

iPhones sales by quarter (in thousands):

Code:
FY	    Q1	    Q2 	    Q3 	    Q4   Total
2007			   270	 1,119	 1,389
2008	 2,315	 1,703	   717	 6,890	11,625
2009	 4,363	 3,793	 5,208	 7,367	20,731
2010	 8,737	 8,752	 8,398	14,102	39,989
2011	16,240	18,650	20,340	17,070	72,300
2012	37,044	35,100	26,000		98,144
				       244,178
Total iPhone 1 sales ~ 6.1 million.
2012 Q1-3 iPhone sales ~ 98 million.
That is the equivalent of every original iPhone owner buying close to two new phones every month.
