Meaningless without the Percentages

The report says:
> Top 5 PDAs Adding Software:
> 1. Tungsten T series
> 2. HP iPAQ h4000 seroes
> 3. Dell Axim series
> 4. HP iPAQ 2200 series
> 5. HP iPAQ 5000 series
However, there is a big difference in the interpretation of this if the percentages were 20.2, 20.1, 20.0, 19.9 and 19.8 vs. the percentages of 96.0, 1.2, 1.1, 0.9, and 0.8.

It also depends on their definition of "software". I bet they are counting every skin, background, dictionary file, and useless database file (like "Top 100 bat caves in South America, ThinkDB format" or "The Hello Kitty Palmary Clock skin").

(Gee, Tic-Tak-Toe 1.0 would even a PPC user would care)

Could that be because Handango keep increasing the commission rate?

Either developers earn less money per transaction or they increase their selling price to compensate - and you can't blame them for not wanting to lose money.
