Apple Apple sold 1.1 million iPhones during its fourth quarter, the company said in its results statement on Monday. This brought total sales of the iPhone to 1.39 million since its launch and pushed the company's revenue to USD 6.22m (GBP 3.04m) for the quarter. The good news was not solely to do with the iPhone, however, as the company also reported shipping 2.1 million Mac computers, representing 34 percent growth over the fourth quarter of 2006. Apple 'exceeded the previous quarterly record for Mac shipments by 400,000', the company said in the statement. Additionally, News.com tries to look beyond the marketing.

I emphatically disagree that their business model isn't good. Apple's success points out the fact that a large segment of the consumer market believes that it's better to have a device or computer in which the hardware and software were designed to complement each other. I don't think this is a market segment that is going to go away any time soon.

For personal computers and "gadgets," I too am a firm believer in this philosophy. Of course, servers are a very different matter ...
