Macs in Chemistry

What next for Apple?

I’m in the process of updating the Safari extensions to add a couple of feature requests. So things will be quiet for a couple of days.

Apple Financial Report, they seem to be doing extraordinarily well considering the current economic climate.

The Company posted record revenue of $15.7 billion and net quarterly profit of $3.25 billion, or $3.51 per diluted share”

“Apple sold 3.47 million Macs during the quarter, representing a new quarterly record and a 33 percent unit increase over the year-ago quarter. The Company sold 8.4 million iPhones in the quarter, representing 61 percent unit growth over the year-ago quarter. Apple sold 9.41 million iPods during the quarter, representing an eight percent unit decline from the year-ago quarter. The Company began selling iPads during the quarter, with total sales of 3.27 million”

So the question is “What Next”
