So Tim Cook has the time to fly all the way to Italy to meet with the Pope. How the hell does that help the company or shareholders? He waste his time on this crap.
Yet Cook has no time to address supply chain rumors that have been festering for almost TWO MONTHS! Shareholders and employees and retirees have lost over $250 billion in wealth because of these supply chain rumors have been allowed to spread unchecked. Pisses me off. Mr Cook please spend your time doing what we are paying you $100,000,000 a year for: protect Apple's image and name.
Without some basis of the number of sales of iPads, this report is essentially meaningless. If Apple sold 100 iPads and 12 of them were Pros, that would be bad. If they sold 25 million (which would beat last year's 21.42 million for the same quarter), that would be stunning. Without that important context, saying the iPad mini sold more doesn't really tell us much of anything.
Apple's success in China does not account for that giant discrepancy entirely, however. The other factor not really mentioned in this summary, but supported by numerous other studies, is simply that iOS users tend pay for their apps because they use them a lot; Android users tend to prefer free apps and resist in-app purchases, and appear to use them very little (except for games). More revenue = more developers = better and more apps.
