Probably not getting them at all. Aquamarine/Astronaut Claire promised to give them us this month but she deleted her Twitter account, and AFAIK she was the only person giving us numbers in the 1st place. Looks like we might not be getting specific numbers for the foreseeable future at all.

Oh! Didn't know that. =( I guess will be betting on them estimates and the positioning of the hardware and software.

Boutros, doesn't cyber Monday count with December npd? I can swear that was making the rounds sometime last month. If so i think it should be mentioned in the OP as a possible contributing factor.
