Apple "Apple just posted its hotly-anticipated Q2 2013 earnings, and the company posted a profit of $9.5b on revenues of $43.6b, compared to $11.6b in profit on $39.2b in revenue this quarter last year and $13.1b in profit on $54.5b in revenue last quarter. That's right in line with the company's guidance from last quarter. Most importantly, iPhone sales are fairly flat year-over-year. Apple sold 37.04 million in Q2 2013 versus last year's 35.1 million, a modest growth of seven percent. iPad sales for the quarter were 19.5 million, up a massive 65 percent from last year's 11.8 million, but the average selling price (ASP) dropped fairly steeply year-over-year, likely due to the introduction of the cheaper iPad mini."

You're absolutely right. I really do believe that's the game plan for Apple by Tim.

Unfortunately that excitement is like crack for some people. They've had a fair bit of it, and they want more.

If Apple stops providing it, they'll look elsewhere. And they are looking elsewhere. Just look at the latest product launch for the S4. It was right over the top, in the kind of way that Steve Jobs was like to do in the past. It wasn't quite as slick as Apple, but you could clearly see what they were trying to do.

But, most importantly; grown-up, boring companies make grown-up, boring products. It's the irresponsible, risk-taking companies that make the stuff you actually want to buy.

Just ask Microsoft.
