In Apple’s earnings announcement, for fiscal 2010’s first quarter, they revealed a profit of 3.38 BILLION (with a “B”) dollars.  (Up from $2.26 Billion one year ago.) How many companies can say they went UP over 1 BILLION dollars in one year in a down economy?

They sold

3.36 Million Macs (up 33% from last year)
8.7 Million iPhones (up 100%)
21.0 Million iPods (down 8%)
And of course, they are to make a big announcement of a new product tomorrow (Jan 26, 2010).
