I understand you must sell your product.
We do not NEED to know that the iphone sold X amount the first few days.

If it salls 200,000 copies or 100 millions copies, it made money, some wanted it right now. Wanting it right now DOES NOT make you money for the lang haul. If Apple sold 10 million copies in the first 2 weeks and then sold nothing else would that be good - nope!

Sales over the lifetime of the product matter way more.

Don't know, don't care about - h.265 basically an American invention.

Once again, don't be a child.
We have AMPLE experience with the sales pattern of both new Apple devices and new computing devices, and that experience allows us to do a reasonable job of extrapolation from initial sales to total sales.
(The same is also, by the way, true for most movies, although there the data is noisier.)

"...and that experience allows us to do a reasonable job of extrapolation from initial sales to total sales."

And I agree - so why must this site post the sales numebrs so readily? Like it means something?

It's basicly an ad FOR the company - right?

IF you don't get it - sorry for you!

And don't call me child again.
