Apple continues to add to its war chest, sells record numbers of iPhones

It's beginning to become a broken record when reporting on Apple's quarterly earnings, but the boys from Cupertino have done it again. Apple today announced its earnings for fiscal Q1 2012 and the results are as usual very impressive.
 
The company reported net profit of $13.06 billion on revenue of $46.33 billion ($13.87 per diluted share). Profit for fiscal Q1 2012 was more than double that of fiscal Q1 2011, while gross margins came in at 44.7 percent compared to 38.5 percent a year ago.
 
“We’re thrilled with our outstanding results and record-breaking sales of iPhones, iPads and Macs,” said Apple CEO Tim Cook. “Apple’s momentum is incredibly strong, and we have some amazing new products in the pipeline.”

 
As for product sales numbers, Apple sold 37.04 million iPhones during the quarter (a 128 percent increase) and 15.43 million iPads (a 111 percent increase). The company's Mac sales also saw an increase, but "only" saw a 24 percent increase year-over-year to 5.2 million units.
 
Apple iPods, however, continue their downward spiral in this age of digital convergence. Sales of the portable music players were down 21 percent to 15.4 million units.

Considering all the megalomaniaism and xenophobiaism that goes on at DailyTech, I'd think that they'd be celebrating the triumph of American technology and design over the Korean, et al. I'd think that they'd be angry when other companies basically rip off Apple/American products. Jobs spent years perfecting the first iPhone. Samsung just looked at the iPhone and figured out how to capture its success. If it had been a Chinese company, I'm sure they'd be singing a different tune.

I really don't understand the hate against Apple. I don't own any Apple products, simply because I do find their products unappealing: I don't need a smart phone. I don't need to be online 24/7. I don't need an mp3 player: I like hearing things around me when I'm walking, running, hiking, biking (much safer, too). My Kindle is a better eReader than anything Apple has. But, I have a lot of respect for the company, and particularly Steve Jobs. And who knows, maybe one day I'll change my mind.

Mentally Challenged, that's quite ironic coming from you.

Mac's use all PC hardware, the only difference really is the case and the software.
A "Hackintosh" is every bit of a Mac if all that's different is the shiny Apple logo.

No, people aren't unaware. It's just that a hackintosh is one step away from buying a computer from a guy in a white van.

Building your own Linux or Windows box is legit.
