Apple might double profit

Written by Nick Farell


As losers queue for broken gear
In the middle of the iPhone 4 crisis, Apple seems to think that it is about to announce that its profits have doubled.

Analysts are predicting that profits will rise thanks to demand for the iPad toy and early sales of the rubber band powered iPhone 4. Estimates are that Apple may say net income in the fiscal third quarter surged to $2.87 billion. Bloomberg has been running around asking analysts and has added up the numbers and divided by its shoe size and come up with the figure.

A year earlier, the company said profit rose to $1.23 billion. This means that despite making a product that no one knows what it does, or is broken, Apple's revenue surged 76 percent. At the moment Apple's stock is falling as it has become clear that Jobs Mob is going to do nothing meaningful about the broken iPhone 4.

Consumer Reports said it couldn’t recommend the device because of the flaw, the first time the watchdog hasn’t given its imprimatur to an iPhone. At a press conference last week, Apple said less than a percent of users have reported the glitch to its customer service centres.  But since it is pointless reporting something that everyone knows about and is waiting for Apple to fix, that is not really an argument.

Still the profit indications show that there are people will buy a dog turd if there is an Apple logo on it.

Put a band-aid on a broken product and they won't notice? Well, at least only the uneducated tech savvy people won't notice. Oh did you drop and shattered your phone? I guess you won't see the end of my post then.

how could you answer for Nick? he seems to be the only one really trying his hardest to take down the Mob...when he and many other misguided Microsoft people are pretty much the same.....wouldn't it be just easier to not care about it? just care about you have and what the industry puts out? Do you guys own some part of MS? I can understand if that was the case...

No, we also make fun of MS, but this time it's Apple's turn.

show me a article as heinous as all the one's Nick posts and I'll stand corrected. you see, there are some people in this world who like to use both platforms...so..

...you don't buy an iPhone because it is the best smartphone but because it has the image. new is that such a long expected product has such a dumb technical issue. It wouldn't surprise me much if it would turn out you have to hold the iPhone in a certain manner to make sure you can call and people would still adore the most famous vegetable selling company ;-)

I used to use both platforms as well, and both have their pros and cons.

However, Nick's bile ridden piece has nothing to do with platforms, but rather with Apple's consumer policies.

We repeatedly said that the iPhone 4 is the best smartphone money can buy at the moment and we recommended it in our review. However, Apple's crisis management has cocked up, quite badly... Hence, we'll keep ridiculing Apple until it properly addresses the issue.
