Apple Orders 10 Million Tablets? 221

Posted by ScuttleMonkey

Arvisp writes "According to a blog post by former Google China president Kai-Fu Lee, Apple plans to produce nearly 10 million tablets in the still-unannounced product's first year. If Lee's blog post is to be believed, Apple plans to sell nearly twice as many tablets as it did iPhones in the product's first year."

You do need a supermajority to pass legislation in the US. First of all, the senate and the house has to agree. A minority of 40 senators can filibuster a bill, making sure it never reaches a vote. Moreover, you need support from certain key committee members. So you need at least

(1) Support from key senators and representatives.
(2) Support (or not too strong opposition) from 60% of senators.
(3) A majority in the house.
(4) Avoid a veto from the president, or much higher support to override a veto.

Maybe that's why things rarely get done in the US.

Put not your trust in money, but put your money in trust.
