Apple Another solid quarter for Apple. "The Company sold 35.1 million iPhones in the quarter, representing 88 percent unit growth over the year-ago quarter. Apple sold 11.8 million iPads during the quarter, a 151 percent unit increase over the year-ago quarter. The Company sold 4 million Macs during the quarter, a 7 percent unit increase over the year-ago quarter. Apple sold 7.7 million iPods, a 15 percent unit decline from the year-ago quarter." The official Apple Money Pile: $110 billion. That's where those 47% profit margins you pay go to!

I am a Linux fanboy, but I can't advise anyone I love against mac products. Any of them.

Android 4 (on my Galaxy S II) is nice enough that I feel no Apple lust. Apple laptop hardware is still singularly glorious, and the price difference is negligible. Touch pads are a bugger to use under Linux though, at least they are the way I have configured them.
