That is true and why I under estimated. I never included any of the retail in that figure or any used OEMs Just because of that. You will notice that at a 1million sales rate that is about 100,000 new subs just for OEMs (at some point to be sure) but there are still subs that have to be included like retail (losses which is already taken out by all - churn of 500,000) but they will have some NEW ones sign up. So I come up with a simple number that will include (to the most likely low side) of just using OEM sales numbers alone. I figure the others will cancel out each other (if not yield a higher number of adds) I like to underestimate and then be happy when a surprise of a higher number comes in. I think the other way gets us nowhere except pissed off investors when things are worse then they figured.
As for Mel, we all know the way he works!!! He said we have as of LAST WEEK BEATEN our old HIGH??????? He never said by how much. We just know by AT LEAST how much and that number is at least almost 70,000. Lets also remember this is the same guy that does not want to project anymore then what he has said about revenue (which is over 2.7 billion) and they would have to add almost nothing to get to that number already.
P.S. It is nice to have you posting in the forums more. I like to be question (by intelligent people havasucker not dumbasses, that is just a waste of time).
