Yes, Virginia, activation != sales

Apple's iPhone sales figure significantly higher than AT&T's activations.

Reuters reports that Apple is announcing iPhone sales figures of 270,000 for the second calendar quarter. Now the question is why don't AT&T and Apple's numbers agree? [Update from conference call: Apple does seem to be blaming it on activation problems. So 46% of iPhones had activation problems lasting longer than 30 hours? Wow.]

Also, another great quarter overall with record Mac sales and iPod sales up 21% year-over-year.

The Macalope eagerly awaits the first silly pundit to point out -- again! -- the dire news that iPod sales were down for the second consecutive quarter. The pointy one never gets tired of that tomfoolery!

[Update: On the conference call, Apple seems to be hinting at some new lower margin products coming during the current quarter for the school buying season. That's the horned one's interpretation anyway.]
