Introducing: The iCurve

An incredibly unfair exaggeration, but I just had to get this one out of my head. That said, I still wouldn't be surprised if twenty years from now, I see a man walking down the street with a white box over his head. As he passes by, you hear his muffled voice, "Yeah, I got the new iCube! Isn't it amazing how technology keeps improving?"

Now if you'll excuse me, Zach Morris is calling me on my cell phone.

I don't understand. Why do you lump all Apple products together? You have all other cell phones and computers separate, but you group Apple products together. If you separated it into "Apple phones" and "Apple computers", the Apple line on the graph would look just like all the others. I'm pretty sure the iPad is one of the smallest consumer computers. I understand that it's bigger than the iPhone but it's not in the same category so I don't feel like you can compare it.

First off, let me reiterate that this is an incredibly unfair exaggeration.

Second, and maybe this is just me, but I feel that a certain point, Apple's line of handheld media devices and computing devices merged together. The obvious examples of this would be the iPhone and iPod Touch, but you could argue that they were experimenting earlier with some of the improvements they've made to some iPod models. Thus, at least in my mind, the iPad and the iPhone are pretty much in the same boat.
