Once again, a new phone and the huge holiday sales are just a temporary blip. Now iPhone sales will fall as others release their new phones, until Apple releases the iPhone 5S and we start the whole damn rat race again. Why even bother reporting who's currently ahead at any given point? How about just reporting forecasting trends for the entire year?
