Apple "Apple Inc reported quarterly revenue that slightly missed Wall Street expectations as sales of its flagship iPhone came in below target, sending its shares down more than 4 percent. The world's largest technology company shipped 47.8 million iPhones, lower than the roughly 50 million that Wall Street analysts had predicted. Sales of the iPad came in at 22.9 million in the fiscal first quarter, about in line with forecasts." I'll leave the financials to the experts, but one thing that stood out to me: Apple sold 4.2 million Macs, almost a million below expectations. How much of a future does desktop computing have at Apple? Update: The NYT/Reuters changed the title during the night. Fixed it.

If I were to point at something it would be the "iPhone disappoints" bit.

It should say/mean "Annalists prediction of iPhone sales wrong again".


Actually, the most correct title would have been "iPhone disappoints Wall Street analysts predicted sales", because really, that's all this was. Predicted sales. Shah Wu/Gene Munster etc, complete fantasy land.
