Apple While Apple faced bad news today, it also faced some seriously good news. The company announced the financial results for the third quarter of the year, and they are - again - very good, despite the sorry state of the world economy and the PC industry. We can now also say who of the two analyst firms were correct.

Apple targets about 10 to 15% of the world's population. Given the median acquisitive power among the world's population, that seems to be about right regarding the percentage which can actually afford their products. That is why they are a business and why they have billions of dollars in the bank, and that is probably one of the reasons why you don't.

Companies tend to focus in those markets which require a lower effort.
