How many *people* can possibly be employed in positions to *use* those workstations Edwin? THINK, for once in your miserable life.

This isn't total workstations that exist that you've been quoting, this is half a year's sales, supposedly. You're suggesting that it is reasonable for the yearly sales figure for workstations to be 1.6 BILLION.

I lost 110 pounds over the last year, and it wasn't even any effort. :-) All I did was start keeping a...

30% of the Earth's population is age 14 and under and another 7% is age 65 plus (source: Population Reference Bureau's 2004 World Population Data Sheet), but you seem to think it sensible for there to have been a workstation sold for every 2.5 people on Earth, age 15 to 64? That's SOLD in 2004. Even as a figure for workstations in *use* it's obviously ludicrous.

Roughly half of the Earth's population lives in urban environments (48%, actually), so now we're looking at 1.2 billion people as the potential market for workstations. Do you see such workstations everywhere, Edwin. Because you would; brand new workstations for every urban adult in the entire world.

That's what you're pretending is plausible.

I'm not the one who is blustering in defense of the indefensible.
