Surely you heard.
How I Apple's iPhone sales were doing over the last quarter they dialed up and very strong third quarter sales the company reporting its best not a holiday quarter ever.
Here's the question okay and apple hold onto its lead back with us now Michael Rose our favorite apple -- -- all -- -- gonna lead -- at.
Too well dot com the unofficial apple weblog -- creative director for digital solutions.
With MJM creative services great to see again thanks for being with -- -- to be here you know I usually hate graphs and charts and everything does it too many -- The Wall Street Journal had the most beautiful indication of where Apple's money is coming from their profits their network was up 15%.
What it's all the iPhone -- it is a 300%.
Increase in iPhone sales and every the iPod was down.
Macs are down it's all about this may be right here -- That's right and the Mac revenue is down because the mix of machines are moving to the cheaper side.
You're getting fewer people spending money on the expensive desktops more people taking advantage of those lower cost laptops at the 9991199.
Price point that the company introduced.
But it really is a sign that this is no longer Apple Computer that's why they changed the name it's apple incorporated so every piece of the puzzle -- contributing.
Still say it catch myself saying Apple Computer sometimes do you think -- that's a little disquieting to the company that sure they absolutely love these great iPhone sales but.
The fact that they have machines themselves that aren't selling at such a brisk pace anymore do you think that they're figuring out we better get back on that trying to.
They may be taking a look at it -- mean overall.
Computer sales were up 4% year over year so they are still growing in a very tough environment they are still making progress.
But as that as the margin shift toward the less expensive machines -- Apple's competing with low cost netbooks and other machines that are taking up.
Some of the some of the revenue in that computer space.
I do think they're they're keeping an eye on the low end of that market there's also cannibalization.
I mean why would I want an iPod if my iPhone can do the same that -- -- -- could use that term in the in the earnings call yesterday Apple's -- said.
This is a perfect example of putting yourself out of a market -- out of business before the competition does it to you.
Apple really wants people they're going to be buying MP3 players wants them to buy the iPod Touch which is -- more profitable product.
And the the iPod traditional iPod market is gonna go away at some.
Point Obama throw this out to you Lenovo.
And I think pat IBM sold to this Chinese company and now they reprint them under the -- government.
You know they're working on something you know they've got a lot up their sleeve what if they turn around and start beating apple at that laptop game.
At some point and then it's a little late can't talk.
Well -- is a really strong competitor in the -- -- base they have an incredible lock on the enterprise market.
The thinkpad has had some trouble capturing some of those high -- consumers remember Apple's customers are people that are willing to spend a little more money on a computer as Microsoft is so ably pointed out in their advertising.
And if Lenovo really wants to capture the high end of that market they're gonna have to come up with something pretty spectacular Steve Jobs got to ask you about Steve this is he in a commanding role now and apple again.
It you know from everything we've been told he is back it yet at work at least part timer mostly full time.
It's -- it's not clear that he ever really lost his grip on the tiller.
But you look at the results for this company over the past quarter when he was pretty much on medical leave the entire time and their phenomenal to there with.
-- people should feel okay about that -- -- good to see you might should thank you very much blood dot com stance toward the unofficial apple.
-- great night for.
