Apple is doomed
Seriously they're really hitting on all cylinders and this is good news to the investors and us customers.
I just hope they take these profits to increase their innovation, the so called iWatch and TV are nowhere to be seen and we've not seen any major changes to the iDevices.
Looks like the folks who follow this more accurately detail a less then rosy picture, due to lack of growth.

"Strongest ever quarterly earnings" according to whom? Their margins are down from last year, thus the 6% after hours slide.
Again, it's just a stupid betting game. Long investors lose money despite insane profits.
2008 MacPro 8-core, 2.8 GHz, 32 GB RAM, 250 GB SSD
2011 Macbook Air 1.2 GHz i5
2012 Macbook Pro Retina 2.3 GHz i7
iPad 4th Gen Retina, iFone 5S

This is the fourth-highest quarterly earnings (profit) by any company (any country).
Of the six highest earnings ever, Apple now owns positions 4, 5, and 6. The top three are all oil companies. Of the top 20, Apple is the only non-oil company.
1. Gazprom (Russian oil), $16.24B USD, August 2011
2. Royal Dutch Shell (Netherlands/UK oil), $15.68B USD, June 2008
3. Exxon (US oil), $14.8B USD, September 2008
4. Apple, $13.1B USD, January 2014
5. Apple, $13.08B USD, January 2013
6. Apple, $13.06B USD, January 2012
Owning an Android phone makes a statement, and that statement is: "Yeah, this is where I am in life. It's not where I want to be, but I'm doing my best."
