Not surprised﻿

Yes...samsung 100...apple 3.. duh...﻿

More like Apple math. If the numbers add up to more than 100%... magical!﻿

Well how you count this. I broke my S3, no ins and still one more year before renewal. I end up getting the note 2 at full price. Love the note 2 it's F awesome. ﻿

That doesn't explain it. You can't get more than 100% of something. It's simple mathematics.﻿

It seems CNet not only doesnt understand math, but they fail pretty bad at G+ as well. Simply trying to drive readers to their articles instead of actually engage them. +CNET you dont have time for us...I dont have time for you.﻿

that may be simple mathematics, but this is simple economics. Look at it this way, if the average net income(revenue - expense) of the entire. industry is \$1 million, and my company makes \$1.03 in revenue, then I have made 103% of the profits.﻿

I understand what you are trying to say, but that is not a correct way to state that. You could say that you made 3% more than the average, or 103% of the average, but when you state that you made 103% of the profits you are now talking about all of the profits and not the average profit, of which you only made a much smaller percentage and the sum of all competitors % of the pie must equal 100%. ﻿

Wow people dont know how percents work. Let me write these posts. Wow. ﻿

By not including that it's an average (I'm assuming it is), you sound 103% stupid. lol﻿
