Whats the problem with more Apple articles? No one is forcing you people to click on them. There are tons of sites dedicated to NON APPLE articals and news. Go take a hike there lol so you don't have to wait for your specific brand of choice write ups, since that's what you guys are looking for.

That's not my point at all. PA is on a rehashing anything about Apple spree. Count how many articles are about Apple from Thanksgiving to now, and I can assure you it's over 20.

They are reporting news and that graph has other devices as well. If they were on top, I am pretty sure this article would have been different.

I would suggest Phonedog because of Aaron Baker, but they're a little slow on reporting news.

I like phonedog too but they seem to be US oriented only. Pocketnow, android authority and gsmarena are good too !

Why read for one? Also why post something negative? They pull articles from all major websites.

Dude you totally have no life. You're spending too much time here whining about apple to have one. Telling a tech site to go F itself for reporting tech news. That's like telling Wendy's to go F itself, for selling burgers.

I'm with the OP on this one cause to be honest, this is one retarded article. If it compared iPad sales to last year's thanksgiving day sale then it would have merit....but to a no name week RIGHT before thanksgiving where everyone is saving money for the thanksgiving day sale....come on. Literally EVERYTHING probably grew in sales because EVERYTHING was on sale. They even mention in the article who the "others" were, but who cares because we all knew they would. That is why this article is retarded, the reason they went with the Apple headline is because they know how to bait people now. Now watch this, I am now predicting that next week the iPad will not sell nearly as much as this week. Nor will the S4, and the kindle and the battery powered underwear. For my excellent analysis (and newly found prestigious title of analyst) I will be expecting my ginormous check from PA in the mail soon (better yet do a direct deposit, pm for info).
