Nice job of betting your passionate conviction. I really thought by
having the number above even the most bullish professional analysts –
one of whom (unquoted by Gruber) had predicted about 13 million through
mid-2011 – I was safe.
Still, I love the iPad and am happy to be wrong.
And, let this be an example to those often making
gloomy-but-untestable-and-unbacked predictions (cough, *Beberg*, cough)
– it's not really hard or painful to get tangible on the record.
