Apple holds its quarterly earnings call on Monday, which means that analysts are tripping over themselves trying to anticipate Mac sales for the quarter. Both Gartner and IDC predict Apple continuing to buck the trend – to the tune of 7 – 12% growth, depending on who you ask.
“Their sales just seem to defy all logic,” [IDC’s] O’Donnell repeated. “There are obviously a certain number of people buying Macs even in the face of a recession.”
There are also a certain number of people who persist in their employment despite having their heads cemented up their asses.
