Apple Another solid quarter for Apple. "The Company sold 35.1 million iPhones in the quarter, representing 88 percent unit growth over the year-ago quarter. Apple sold 11.8 million iPads during the quarter, a 151 percent unit increase over the year-ago quarter. The Company sold 4 million Macs during the quarter, a 7 percent unit increase over the year-ago quarter. Apple sold 7.7 million iPods, a 15 percent unit decline from the year-ago quarter." The official Apple Money Pile: $110 billion. That's where those 47% profit margins you pay go to!

I'm not doubting that, just wondering why nobody has set up a mining installation up yet.


Maybe mining companies can't find the skilled workers they need? Seems to be acceptable excuse.

Nah, all you need is the capital letter A. Just remember to watch out for the smaller zippier UFO.
