Apple Apple reported its quarterly results, and thanks to the iPhone 4S and the iPad, Apple is putting out bizarre figures - 37 million iPhones, 15.5 million iPads. "The Company sold 37.04 million iPhones in the quarter, representing 128 percent unit growth over the year-ago quarter. Apple sold 15.43 million iPads during the quarter, a 111 percent unit increase over the year-ago quarter. The Company sold 5.2 million Macs during the quarter, a 26 percent unit increase over the year-ago quarter. Apple sold 15.4 million iPods, a 21 percent unit decline from the year-ago quarter." Is this the end of Android's dominance, or just a single uberquarter due to the new iPhone?

Is Apple responsible for HP abandoning WebOS?

Is Apple responsible for the incorrect judgements made in the anti-Samsung lawsuits (since overturned)?

Is Apple responsible for ICS not being widely released well before Xmas?

Is Apple responsible for RIM's mismanagement?

Is Apple responsible for Nokia's mismanagement?

Is Apple responsible for WP7 development problems?

The answer to each and every one of these is a resounding no. Therefore Apple has been very, very lucky.

Next Xmas Apple won't have any of these misadventures to capitalise on.

Actually, you could make a case that Apple's influence had an impact on each one of those line items. So, the answer isn't a "resounding no". Apple has clearly disrupted the market all around causing problems for many companies trying to get a bite of those profits.
