?There has been a ton of misreporting as many lazy reporters and bloggers have characterized this as all sales, which it wasn?t, or even consumer sales, which it most assuredly was not,? said Stephen Baker of the NPD Group, in an email reply to questions. ?It has been very personally distressing to me that so many reporters/bloggers refuse to read, or don?t know what commercial channels mean.?

In his email, Baker defined the commercial channel as the distributors -- like CDW and Ingram Micro -- that many businesses, government agencies, schools and other organizations use to buy personal computers and other devices. His data did not include consumer sales, nor PCs sold by OEMs, such as Dell and Hewlett-Packard, directly to businesses.

Every crapanalyst and crapblogger jumped on that report like flies on sh*t. It was downright embarrassing.

Actually, the official report NPD says commercial channels so not sure what the big deal is.
