" I've seen a few WWII era rifles stamped "manufactured by IBM" or similar...that's because they needed to use the manufacturing capacity."
Oh god. I can imagine every 5th shell stamped with "This shell intentionally made blank."
38%? Are you sure?
"... Thursday's report, from the Center for the Study of the American Electorate, put 2012 voter turnout at 57.5% of all eligible voters." - http://www.abc15.com/dpp/news/national/election-results-2012-voter-turnout-lower-than-2008-and-2004-report-says
And the Bipartisan Research Center, clearly a liberal media tool, also reports 57.5%. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voter_turnout_in_the_United_States_presidential_elections
I could go on. Oh, and finally, if only 20% voted for Obama, then by your stats only 18% voted for Romney. You weren't trying to imply 80% was against Obama, were you?
Going from 1 user to 3 users is indeed a growth rate of 200%, but relying on rate without quantity (measured in absolute units or market share percentage) means nothing.
And don't forget the Kin phone Microsoft released a couple years ago (2009/10 IIRC). You know, that was pushed in the commercials where the awkward dude stalked the girl, took pictures of her, and geeked out on his computer about it, while she gives the final "Go To Hell" look at him? Yep, the Microsoft Kin -- the cell phone designed for stalkers.
@Follow Meeee, you are on crack. Microsoft has absolutely failed at mobile devices, including the Zune, Zune HD, Kin, and Surface RT. Considering they have only sold 900,000 Surface RT & Pro tablets with an estimated 6 million unsold devices on hand, nobody can declare their Surface tablets anything like a success. As a retail product, as well as a technology demonstrator to spur other manufacturers to produce Win 8 mobile devices, it is an absolute failure. No other manufacturers are getting behind it.

I repeat, the blue bird eats a taco.
