And this is why pencil-neck, purely numbers guys shouldn't be analyzing AAPL. They fail to take into account the product cycles and the rumormill. They should visit the MacRumors Buyer's Guide more often.

Very interesting observation. This money isn't going to shareholders in the form of higher dividend and is just too much to invest in other companies. I see a lot of 'Apple must make profit' remarks as if it is a struggling company. They could just consider lowering their margin. Make a lot more people happy. Not so, Apple has become an elitist brand where the punter is expected to always pay premium prices and like it. Stop your 'Apple bashing' remarks, we all see it is so. Apple isn't there for the fans, the fans are there for Apple. Me inclusive.

Exactly what I've been saying. Don't listen to analysts.

It's funny, I know quite a few people who are data analysts and each one says so many different things about the same subject. All these guys are purely numbers people and fail to take into account things like real-world trends and the human factor.

That's exactly what it means. Post-PC means that people will stop buying over-powered computers for doing menial tasks and instead opt to purchase smaller mobile devices.

There are a lot of people who do actually make use of all that power, but there are a massive more who do not and can get by without a full blown PC. I know a lot of people who do not currently own a computer and rely on their smartphones.

Keep in mind that AAPL is conservative and crush their own estimates while analysts are all over the damn place. Do what I do, don't listen to analysts.
You don't have to listen to them, just so long as you know as the market as a whole, does.

It's ridiculous to see how much negativity some people try to create out of every topic Apple. These numbers are freaking insane!

Haha.

Funny you say that because I'm taking a beginning computer class this semester (like I need it ) and one topic of discussion was what qualifies a device as a "computer". To cut a long story short, one does not need to have a Mac Pro to have a "real" computer.

Which if it happens would be a disaster, since it would represent a drop from the same quarter this year. Yeah, so, wow.

Getting within 1% is not easy they were remarkably accurate this quarter, it bugs me that people say analysts are unreasonable when they were, have been and will probably continue to be a lot more accurate then AAPL. It also doesn't matter whether you listen to the analysts or not the market does.

I think it will slowly grind higher short term since it had quite a big correction, and it is far from expensive right now.

121.3 billion in cash/liquid assets.
That just boggles the mind. Totally insane.
Yes another good quarter for Apple. The big question is what will Applw do with all it's cash?
