Much excitement in the Apple results this week. Particularly when reading TechCrunch’s forensic analysis of what lies behind the big numbers that are wowing analysts. Typically Apple under-forecasts on results but the consensus is that these figures are truly surprising given its product price points and the global recession.
I have an obvious personal interest in the hidden news nugget about how half a billion apps were sold in the last three months alone. With this type of momentum I wonder what kind of milestones will have been passed in a year’s time after the iPhone is officially sold in China.
And all of the attendant rumours about secret products remind me that Apple can’t resist a dig at the “Old Enemy” given that this is supposed to be Windows 7 Week.
