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?

Doesn't mean anything. It's free. If I used a Mac I would have grabbed a copy to see what it could do. I'm sure lots of people did the same thing.

And its license pretty much make it useless unless you want to sell iBook.

iBooks file format currently works only on iPad (no! not even beloved iPhone got it! apple customers should feel screwed shouldn't they?).
If you want to sell it you can only distribute it by Apple service (however this part of Apple authoring tool may not be legal), and Apple still have right to refuse distribution, so you can not sell it after all.

I can not see how new iBooks helps Apple in any regard apart from some possible push for education tax funds, and anti trust investigation.
