Bill -- Not only is the chart a waste of ink or pixels, they could have expressed the date in a far more meaningful fashion in a table with (1) 2006 data for the Mac and competitors, (2) 2010 data for mac and competitors, and (3) compound annual growth rates. Now THAT would be meaningful information leading to insights.
