But murray, as I said before, unless one knows precisely how Apple does its LCD orders (monthly, every 3 weeks, quarterly, every two weeks, or just as needed?) then it is almost impossible to know from these current reports whether the quantities mentioned are within normal quarterly ranges or not -- except in an instance where the number seems way too high (ie, 65 million).

So if you saw a report that simply said Apple doubled its initial order of 11 million LCD displays in January (not mentioning a quarter) -- and the source was anonymous in the supply chain -- would you pooh-pooh such a report as you are doing here?

Do you need to be a thread-starter to be a flag waver?
