DialIdol, iTunes, Etc.: Soothsaying or Spoilers?

I just thought it was interesting that Jacob's total votes didn't really change but his score did.
ETA: Now that I've watched the show, it's clearer than ever that DI is worse of a prediction model than ever. My guess is that the online voting is really making things weird. Like I said earlier today, Jacob's score dropped dramatically but it was only a real world loss of ~60 busy signals, which is statistically irrelevant.

Yeah, that and texting too. DI doesn't really seem relevant anymore. Maybe when it's the final two. Maybe.

Could be James too though, as he and Haley are really close, statistically, she just has about 5k more votes being sent in for her about the same amount of busy signals.

Jessica's numbers are beyond huge but she did get real-world buzz and have a "moment" and probably got frontpage of Youtube treatment. I'm more surprised by DeAndre. In this week, the views roughly coincided with the voting: Elise is the least-watched girl and Jeremy the least-viewed guy. I think Joshua's views might be up in light of this week's breakthrough performance.

The numbers are so low and it's hard to read a lot into them. Joshua is leading like he did on DialIdol so maybe he did get the most votes this week? Jessica came back down to earth but she's still popular? People like voting for Phillip more than watching him online? People wanted to see why Shannon got voted out and Elise was in the Bottom 3? I wish Idol's Youtube channel were more popular and more of a go-to place for watching Idols online, so we could get better numbers from it.

Generally it looks as though the figures are more reliable after a wekk or so's viewing, judging by the first two sets of figures.
