Oh, and also beat the crap out of its suppliers for margins. While Apple is happy with its margin that it squeezes out of it suppliers like Foxconn, employees there - Foxconn - are committing suicide because they are losing hope for life.............

Right. That just works............. "You are holding your phone wrong......" is what Steve Jobs said when the iPhone 4 had issues with its antenna. All Apple is good at is making the same things look more fancier and suing the - excuse my language - crap out of its competitors for "looking and feeling" like their products.

This shows what a dedication to quality and innovation can do (provided of course, that the innovation is in a direction that appeals to consumers - iPod, iPhone, iPad, etc., etc.). It is really nice to use a computer or phone or other device that just works. I recall being asked why I would use a Mac when I had the technical expertise to do otherwise - my response was "That is why."

Pretty amazing when the company's only negative was the fact that they couldn't make iPad2's fast enough to meet the demand! Where are the headlines announcing the Apple overtook Nokia in mobile phone sales revenue this past quarter and is now the #1 mobile phone maker in the world? That's pretty big news!

Apple is now a business rocket. I cannot understand how they do this. This company should be studied because they know things few understands

Stunning growth! This year itself Apple will easily overtake IBM in revenues. And also HP/Samsung in next 2 years.
