Glad I asked for a link. That's what happens when someone tries to "interpret" numbers for everyone else.

Here's a quick, simple example.
10 PC's sold at $1,000 each
1 Apple Mac sold at $90,000
PC's held 91% of the market of computers.
Apples held 90% of the "10 dollars spent on computers costing $1,000 " (direct quote from the article).
In other words, "Mac revenue market share in the "premium" price segment" was 90% (in my example).
Simplified version, but done so to make it clear what the terms "dollars spent" and "revenue market share" mean.
Finally, that was for sales for the month of June, 2009, not overall market revenue.
