Right, it's broken. I echo the sentiment previously expressed by other members: I would love to be broken by billions of dollars of profit per quarter. The weight of it in coins would do a good job of crushing me.
Regarding the iPhone, maybe they were wrong to change the size of the screen of the iPhone. Maybe they didn't make it big enough. We'll see what they do next. It would be interesting if they decide to finally make a more substantial change in design.
When it comes to the Mac
Apple CEO Tim Cook responded to questions about the issue of potential cannibalization of Mac sales by iPad devices on today’s earnings call, a question made more timely by the fact that Mac sales were down considerably on the quarter. He reiterated that supply constraints are leading to fewer sales, but also tackled cannibalization as a broad topic, noting that there is opportunity there for the iPad in a couple of important ways.
Cook reiterated that Apple “never fear[s] cannibalization,” since it’s always better to cannibalize your own products rather than have someone else do it to you. But then he went on to address the larger picture, talking about the PC market in general. ”On iPad in particular we have the mother of all opportunities here, because the Windows market is much larger than the Mac market,” he said. “I’ve said in the past that I believe the tablet market would be larger than the PC market at some point and I still believe that.”
