    Shaw Wu... not exactly our favorite AAPL analyst. Still, it's nice to have him sound so positive about the upcoming quarterly results. A prediction: If the consensus earnings forecast is $1.05/share then Apple needs to report at least $1.20 next month in order to restore investor confidence. Hitting the consensus number or only beating it by a little is not going to do it, even if it's significantly above Apple's traditionally conservative guidance.

    Jobs and others at Apple have said before that they do a lot of R&D through lean periods - they don't hold up - and come out of the bubble or whathave you stronger than others who've cut back. Apples financial muscle/buffers do help this, along with their view on how to run the company in such circumstances.
