I meant to say that the quarterly report can be extrapolated, not monthly

This may be overly simplistic, but public companies must report once every quarter. Just change the report from monthly to quarterly - data can be extrapolated based on previous reports, new equipment purchases, supply purchases etc.

It was nice to have that information while it lasted. I don't blame them for not wanting to continue to share their proprietary information.

Reminds me of the old adage: Garbage In = Garbage Out. More correctly, it is a reminder to take all studies and surveys and statistics information with a healthy dose of skepticism UNLESS you know the real constituents of the data. Without the data constituent knowledge, you can only extrapolate gross trends.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
