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.

That is a really lousy headline from the NYTimes, even by the standards of American papers. Took me about four reads to gather than 'fans' didn't mean what I had assumed it did.

Hah, glad I wasn't the only one who noticed that. "iPhone disappointment fans" sounds like some kind of broken-English equivalent of "Apple haters". Or the kind of thing you see in blog spam comments ("I thanks you for the great infos!!")
