Why I alway get only the first 10 elements?

This is my code:

NSURL *blogURL = [NSURL URLWithString:@"http://blog.teamtreehouse.com/api/get_recent_summary/?count=40/"];

NSData *jsonData = [NSData dataWithContentsOfURL:blogURL];

NSError *error = nil;

NSDictionary *dataDictionary = [NSJSONSerialization JSONObjectWithData:jsonData options:0 error:&error];

But if I use count=5 I'll get alway 10 elements while in a web page it's works well both count=40 or count=5.

Because the URL only provides the first 10 elements as the minimum amount regardless of your query.
