Apple "Apple Inc reported quarterly revenue that slightly missed Wall Street expectations as sales of its flagship iPhone came in below target, sending its shares down more than 4 percent. The world's largest technology company shipped 47.8 million iPhones, lower than the roughly 50 million that Wall Street analysts had predicted. Sales of the iPad came in at 22.9 million in the fiscal first quarter, about in line with forecasts." I'll leave the financials to the experts, but one thing that stood out to me: Apple sold 4.2 million Macs, almost a million below expectations. How much of a future does desktop computing have at Apple? Update: The NYT/Reuters changed the title during the night. Fixed it.

When I click the link it says "Apple's iPhone Disappointment Fans Doubt on Growth".

So you are linking to story A, while getting the headline and summary from story B?

Oh, no, they changed the title overnight, apparently. This is the title from last night, when I posted it. Let me fix it.

A butterfly in Japan can cause storms on the other side of the world and changing a headline in the US can cause arguments in The Netherlands.
