"Apple (Cupertino, Calif.) reported sales of $26.74 million" Its billion, please correct.
This is good news. This will cheer up APPLE investors who had got unexpected news last week. I am surprised more people are still buying MAC's even when iPAD is available. But the reduction is sales of iPOD is expected because you get this feature inbuilt in your smartphones.
...and in after-hours trading, AAPL is back up again after this report of record revenue and profit. The investment community knows that Apple will continue doing what Apple does best, even in Mr. Jobs' absence...at least for awhile.
