Apple Hauls Insane $39 Billion Revenue Despite Selling Fewer iPhones and iPads

Quote:
The important thing to know about the last three months of Apple making money, the results of which were just announced, is that the company did not do as well as the previous quarter, but did way better than last year and than pretty much anyone else who produces and sells products.

What would Donald Trump say? "Unbelievable!"

Then I think of this world we live in, this world which seems always to be careening toward disaster and financial ruin, and it becomes too very believable.

Well, it is not like you have a choice on iOS, is it? and wasn't the 4" iPhone rumour going wild before the 4S was announced and even now about the 5? There is a market for larger screens, but with apple is their way or the highway. you can't say people don't want larger screen if they simply don't have the choice.

on android.

leave your ios apps and other investments behind you and move platforms if you want a bigger phone. Simple and it is your decision.

no pressure.

I thought it went something like this just like it did with the original locked down Macs. (Yes I remember those Steve Jobs crafted machines, before he was kicked out of Apple.)

It is so sad how many people have fallen for it, humanity is becoming dumber and more gullible by the day it seems...

I have no love for any particular device as I view them all as tools

But I have never understood why people pay so much more for Apple products.
