Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y Catfight! Get out your mobile phones and start filming, because two important personalities in the mobile world just got into a catfight. After the presentation of Apple's (once again) stellar quarterly results (what's with the low iPad sales, though?), Apple's CEO Steve Jobs went on a bit of a tangent regarding Android (among other things). Google's Andy Rubin, the father of Android, responded in a pretty fun way via Twitter.

far from "stellar" results

A $4 billion profit for a $282 billion company isn't a stellar result. In fact it is an absolutely pathetic result - only 1.5% profit. This means that Apple Inc is selling for around 10x a realistic valuation.

I think the $4 billion thing is a quarterly profit figure.
What do the $282 billion represent?
