iPhone 3G drives solid returns for Apple

Executives remain optimistic despite economic downturn

Apple sold 11 million iPods during the quarter, an 8% growth over the same quarter a year ago. iTunes and retail store sales also were up.

Apple reported its results using non-Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. The alternate accounting approach is designed to eliminate the impact of ongoing subscription sales for the iPhone and Apple TV. Using non-GAAP techniques, Apple reported US$11.7 billion in adjusted sales and US$2.4 billion in adjusted net income.

Like other US technology firms, Apple gave conservative projections for the next quarter. Revenue could come in at US$9 billion to US$10 billion, and earnings per share could be US$1.06 to US$1.35, it said.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
