5. Why does this matter?

Leo Laporte (twit.tv) says this is like religious war.

Or political.

Could the iPhone 5 have surged past ALL Android offerings in the last twelve weeks?

Possible. Every time Apple issues a new iPhone, iPhone fans line up to trade their perfectly good previous model in on the latest.

Possible. iPhone sales fell off a big cliff into a deep ocean while prospective buyers, knowing the "5" was soon to release, stopped buying the 4s. Can't blame 'em for that, but the sales drop was enough to whack Apple's stock.

So, I guess this matters if you're buying Apple stock.

But otherwise, yawn, ho hum, and go take your cell phone jihad somewhere else. Whichever dogma you follow.

Hey, wait, Windows Phone 8 Phone is surging! Just don't call it Metro ---
