    oh well, paid 16/share, so I should cry too loudly.



    Placing market orders for a volatile stock on a day like today is a great way to get hosed.

    With the joint efforts by LG and Apple to see an additional 10 million panels to be made for the iOS platform, it's not unreasonable to see that go up even further.



    We'll be here next time in 2012 talking about 20-25 million iPads world-wide being sold, for the quarter.

    All those billions and they can't find a way to put a password protect on Keynote files after 8 years.

    How embarrassing and grossly inept. \

    I'm thinking the same thing but with fatter memory and a $100/SKU price drop. No one (repeat: NO ONE) will be able to match either your or my suggestion be able to be competitive. The race to the bottom will be over. There will be Apple in the stratosphere and every other tablet seller sitting lower than whale pucky.



    But some out of work attorney will be happy to bring a class-action price-fixing monopoly-type suit against Apple, which will get tied up in courts for ages.

    What USE CASES are you referencing that you need to encrypt a Presentation you intend to be presented to your clients?

    Wow. Talk about a nit-pick that looks like a grain of sand on a beach...



    There are utilities out there that will encrypt and password protect individual files A quick search on MacUpdate turned up this free app and many others: http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/32894/cryptor

    Had my wife given me a iPad for Christmas Apple's sale would have been $499 higher!

    How many like me didn't let Santa know? Around $99,000,000 worth of sales?

    She did raise my allowance by $9.60 a week for 2011 so I'll buy my own next Christmas.

    Agreed, hard to believe Steve can hold his head up.



    Imagine how embarrassed he must be.

    He wants Presentations to be akin to Acrobat Password encrypted self-contained presentations. He wants that functionality built into Keynote so he can type in the password, I suppose, or protect his stolen presentation from being opened by a thief, perhaps.



    I think he'd rather see Keynote be able to export all those transitions and other animated functionality to a self-contained PDF that he can encrypt, but I won't speak for him.

    iPhone sales were a bit disappointing.

    Just buy ten shares of AAPL and let it fund itself. One year target is about $450, even after you pay capital gains, you'll have enough for a nice iPad.

    If you were in charge, Apple wouldn't have $60 B in the bank.



    The iPad is the market leader in almost every way you can count. The competitors' products are half the size, but cost as much as the iPad or more. Just why in the world would Apple drop the price?

    Here's an interesting group of numbers I haven't seen reported yet:

    iPhone: 16,240,000

    iPad: 7,330,000

    iPod Touch: 10,000,000 (19.45 million units, over half of which were iPod touch)

    Apple TV: 1,000,000 (we know they sold at least this many)



    Total IOS devices sold this quarter: 34,570,000



    Average IOS sales per day over the last quarter: 384,111.



    Looks to me like IOS is outselling Android by a huge margin, since they have only recently started claiming over 300,000 per day

    Apple's cash reserves are estimated to be $70B buy the end of 20111; after today's performance, I suspect that number will be substantially higher. At some point, Apple needs to do something with that money - buy something, buy marketshare or return some to shareholders as dividends. I did not buy Apple with the anticipation of a dividend check, so I will be fine if they do either of the other two options.



    Or, they can always open a bank.

    Big story for me is the announcement of 3 more prepaid component deals - just as I have been suggesting. These deals are not only returning great margins to Apple, but also likely disrupting the supply chains of competitors. Not to mention that they may be providing Apple with exclusive access to new technologies.

    Steve Jobs knew what he was talking about when he said RIM won't catch up as well. Apple sold 2 million more iPhones than BlackBerry devices.

    Android activations reached 300K in the first week of December. October started at about 200k. Average 250k for Quarter.



    I still would have preferred more iPhone sales - however that was supply constraints.
