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?

Which included 3 different teams in that 7 year span, so he was on a very lucky streak regarding both rebounds and team mates.

1st off, it's laughable that osnews has one article called "Why People Troll and How to Stop Them" and a second news item called "Apple Reports Bizarre First Quarter Results" visible on the home page at the same time. Thom may want to talk to Howard. BTW that's a blog statement, not 'news'.

Secondly, yep, Rodman got lucky just like Jordan. Think about the odds of the basket always moving itself into position at the end of his shots and other players just letting him shoot or go to the hoop! What luck as well!

As for 'bizarre' first quarter - take the sales, multiple by how much they sell items for, subtract expenses, and you'll find it's not bizarre at all. Or is it supposed to be bizarre that people like it better than the second rate Android knockoffs, RIM misfires, and Win7 Phone strange 'make you scroll horizontally' mess?

Apple just released an excellent phone, and almost a year into its lifecycle the iPad2 is still extremely competitive hardware, and iOS is generally nicer to use than the competition. Assuming the iPad3 shows up with faster GPU, CPU and retina display, will it be bizarre if that sells well too?

A world full of luck and bizarreness. (???)

You do realise bizarre doesn't mean negative, right? I'm just expressing the results are bizarre - which they are, with it being one of the best quarters of all time of any company.
