Boy, this would be a lot less interesting if analysts could read press releases.

Apple three months ago: Looking ahead to the third fiscal quarter, we expect revenue of about $34 billion and diluted earnings per share of about $8.68.

Apple today: The Company posted quarterly revenue of $35.0 billion and quarterly net profit of $8.8 billion, or $9.32 per diluted share.

Apple haters gonna hate.
Apple could come out with a solid gold blowjob machine that converted semen to money and ran on nutsweat, and haters would still find something to hate about it.



People 'hate' on Apple and then a bunch of people get all bent out of shape about it. They get mad because someone insults a corporation. Now that's sad.

ecmoRandomNumbers: I think it's going to be uglier next quarter. I'm selling about one iPhone for every dozen or so Android phones. The demand for the Samsung Galaxy SIII is amazing. The iPhone 5 is going to have to be something absolutely phenomenal for Apple to get their market back. This is for Verizon, mind you. AT&T's iPhone numbers are much higher, I'm sure.


AT&T: 3.7M iphones out of 5.1M smartphones (72%)
verizon: 2.7M iphones out of 5.6M smarthpones (48%)

is there any other single vendor that makes up that much of a percentage of sales? hint: don't say 'android', android is not a vendor.

They never lost their market to begin with. Their numbers have risen steadily since the first iPhone was unveiled.

And if you want to see ugly, wait til people have had time to realize what fragmentation fatigue is in the Android market. It will take a few years but just like people who realize they've been served a shiat sandwich with Windows for over 2 decades and moved to OSX, the Android fatigue will push people to the iPhone and iOS over time.


After experiencing Jellybean with Project Butter, any human would be insane to go back to iOS. Even if you can get it with a decent screen size, finally.

interesting times: Is this really a thing that causes problems for people, or is it some kind of FUD from competitors? I'm asking honestly, not trying to contradict it, just wondering if it's truth because my anecdotal evidence hasn't seen it.


It's not such a big deal for users, especially those on popular devices. But it is a headache for developers:

"I would have preferred spending that time on more content for you, but instead I was thanklessly modifying shaders and texture formats to work on different GPUs, or pushing out patches to support new devices without crashing, or walking someone through how to fix an installation that wouldn't go through. We spent thousands on various test hardware. These are the unsung necessities of offering our apps on Android."

I'm surprised that you've had no problems with your rooted tablet. I don't have one, but from what I've read, most Android apps are not prepared to run on a tablet screen size, and so end up looking kind of dumb.

Gets slower every release.

That's the speed of updates, not the speed of Android adoption. People still will buy phones and frankly not care much what OS it is running. That is the beauty of Android.

I've seen a few posts lately referring to this 'android fragmentation' issue. Is this really a thing that causes problems for people, or is it some kind of FUD from competitors? I'm asking honestly, not trying to contradict it, just wondering if it's truth because my anecdotal evidence hasn't seen it.
I have an android tablet, I 'rooted' it and put some flavor of android (other than with stock firmware) on it shortly after I got it, maybe a year ago, and haven't changed it yet... since then I've never had a problem installing any apps I've ever attempted. Granted, I don't use the tablet a lot, because I find tablets to be ridiculously inferior to computers, but still, I've installed maybe a few dozen apps while trying it out, and never found my particular 'fragment' of 'droid to be an issue.

intelligent comment below: An android is for idiots who love spending hours a day updating firmware and all this other jazz. Like downloading apps to customize something

An iPhone just works out of the box, does everything you want it to, and no headache.


I use an Android and don't spend hours a day updating firmware...the recent ICS update advertised itself on my phone, and took about 20 mins to download and install after I hit "ok." First firmware update I've done in almost a year.

You do realize that a large number of iPhone users "jailbreak" their phones because it does NOT do everything they want it to do, right?

How the heck is that "beautiful?"


Do you care what version of firmware your car's computer runs? Do you want to care, or would you rather just drive somewhere to do something? I'm a software developer for a fortune 82 company. Day in and day out it's my job to think about our product versions, the differences between them, and how those differences impact customers.

When I pick up my Droid, I just want to text my wife, check FB to see what my friends are up to, and shoot some birds at some pigs. I honestly have no idea what version of Android I'm running, and I don't care as long as it works. That's how it's beautiful.

As someone who works on both, all I'm saying is, if you have an Apple, you had better damn well pony up for AppleCare, because if something dies inside that MacBook or iMac, yer farked. It's not like replacing anything in a Windows tower. Link

They still made 8.8 billion dollars this quarter. Yes, made, as in profit, not revenue...

Even with the dividend, the 100+ billion dollar cash pile still grew..

Yes, a disappointed AAPL long,,

Don't cry for me, still way up.
