I was reading an interesting article on-line today about Apple's sales in 2011. It noted that Mac sales are rising fast and that 2011 was the best year ever for Mac sales. "Somewhat interesting, I guess", you say. But hear is the interesting part: In 2011 alone Apple sold more iOS devices then it has sold Macs over their 28 year existence. Granted Macs have not been the most popular computer over the years but the fact that iOS devices outsold 28 years of the Mac in a single year is pretty remarkable. It is just further evidence that mobile is not the next big thing, it has become the current big thing and only is continuing to grow.
