$8.8 billion net-income, a 20% increase from their previous record quarter.

iPhone - 100% increase
iPad - 25% growth
Mac - 25% growth

even the maligned iPod will sell 18 million units. No single business unit is down in an economy that is cratering horribly and in a tech industry that is also cratering. Even in hi-tech it's become stratified between the huge earners(AAPL, MSFT, INTL, GOOG) and everyone else.

As a stockholder, I could not be more pleased....
And Apple customers can rest assured that their money has been well-spent with a robust ecosystem that is built to last, and which will see plenty of strong support years down the road. In contrast to folks who got hosed (or even scammed) with TouchPads, Windows Slates, JooJoo whatevers, and even Playbooks.
