Recession, what?! Just since last year, Apple has managed to increase its revenue by 12 percent during these hard economic times, bringing in $9.87 billion in revenue with a quarterly profit of $1.67 billion. The company managed to sell three million Macs, 10 million iPods, and seven million iPhones, all in its fiscal fourth quarter that ended on Sept. 26. Apple's CEO, Steve Jobs, had this to say about its successful quarter:
"We are thrilled to have sold more Macs and iPhones than in any previous quarter. We've got a very strong lineup for the holiday season and some really great new products in the pipeline for 2010."
I picked up a new iPhone this year, but I didn't get a new laptop or iPod, so I guess I was one of the millions of people who contributed to these staggering figures. What about you? Did you purchase a new Apple device this past year? Or are you waiting for the rumored cheaper MacBooks?
