FORTUNE -- Business Insider's Henry Blodget has a message for Apple "fans" -- an expression he used eight times in the space of one heavily illustrated post Friday, starting with the headline:
Buttressing his message is a deck of slides -- including the one above -- originally presented as part of his keynote at BI's Ignition conference earlier this week.
Like most of the reporters who covered IDC's latest smartphone sales report, Blodget left out the important caveat about both tablet and smartphone sales in Q3: Millions of Apple customers were holding out for this year's models, lowering Apple's Q2 and Q3 market share and creating pent-up demand for Q4.
Besides, if Apple (AAPL) is "blowing it" based on the tablet sales data presented here, what do you call what Microsoft (MSFT), Amazon (AMZN), Research in Motion (BBRY) and Barnes and Noble (BKS) are doing?

The notion that the Apple has a "carrier subsidy problem" just won't die
FORTUNE -- In the summer of 2009 a Danish mobile phone analyst named John Strand issued a 105-page report entitled "The moment of truth: a portrait of the iPhone," that listed the "10 largest myths" about Apple's (AAPL) smartphone:
1) The iPhone drives data traffic into mobile operators networks

Business Insider's Henry Blodget may come to regret -- if he doesn't already -- using the phrase "dead in the water" to describe the performance of Apple's (AAPL) iPhone in a comScore market share survey that seemed to show, as Blodget's headline put it, that "Android is destroying everyone."
The comScore survey to which Blodget was MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - May 12, 2011 5:26 AM ET
There's been a lot of noise recently about how Android is outselling the iPhone, but it's nothing more than a meaningless distraction from reality.
