Apple beats estimates, shares jump 6% after hours
Besides beating estimates on iPhone sales, Apple sold 11.8 million units of its Apple iPad tablet, short of the 12-13 million tablets that Wall Street expected to be sold.
As of 4:45pm EDT, Apple shares were up over 6% to $598.

Apple stock is probably the only thing I would want from Apple.

If anyone is a follower it's android users as android has more marketshare. If you use android you follow the masses.

U got em with that one taco. Android users dis us apple users, yet they r as faithful to android as we r to apple. It's the same thing from the other side of the fence. All u hear android users talk about is the next big thing from google quad core, 6 in. screen etc, but let us discuss the next big apple device, and we're automatically ish**p. That's called hypocrisy.

No, sithman, you have it completely wrong.
There is nothing wrong with being excited for the next generation of devices from your preferred company.
What we call "iSheep" are the imbeciles who declare that Apple is the best there ever was without giving any credit to the accomplishments and quality of other products, and who often do so with limited or zero experience of the competitors they are dissing.

Give Apple credit where its due. But also do the same for others. The last part is what doesnt happen alot with pro Apple and iPhone folks.

Guess it goes both ways... if not 3 ways including WP users.

We will be going on a merry go round with this for ages I see...lol.
Matter of perspective: Android has so many choices. Apple has one iPhone per version.
That 1 version of iPhone outsells every previous version. Apple always breaks some previous sales mark for the iPhone and iPad.
Thats like saying ppl that use different PC's that run Windows are followers. Ppl are following the OS? I guess you are right then. Get an iPhone and you are following the OS and hardware.

Me and Remix have a bet. Samsung vs Apple for who sells the most smartphones this last quarter. If Samsung loses Remix will never post again and if Apple loses I agreed to not post anymore.
We already know Samsung sales are weak in the US when you look at the high percentage of iPhones sold on AT&T and Verizon. Sprint will be the same story. Apple had their fastest international launch ever so they'll have big international sales also.
Don't see Samsung beating them considering they didn't release anything new other than the Note.

Don't jump to the conclusion yet! Samsung is expected to release the Q1 earning result later this week

that is so bad, remix is such a techie, i read all his comments bcas it has some logic and matter. not like some trolls.

dont worry, im not going anywhere. Taco doesnt know how to read and compare. :)

Samsung had a monster quarter as well.. but unlike apple, total sales went UP. Apple beat estimates of its downward trend on the hockey stick line, but still sold LESS than it did in Q4 2012. Samsung sold MORE than it did in Q4 2012.
So yea.. its been.. almost.. nice knowing ya. the boards are going to be so quiet without ya.

Samsung hasn't released its results yet. Also, at least one source has reported results of 41 million smartphones sold by Samsung.
Also, do you really expect us to believe that if you lose you'd honor your agreement? You haven't exactly proven your integrity here.

Looks like the competition between you and Remix is over... Samsung is estimating 44 billion devices sold in 1st quarter of 2012.

Hurry Taco,sell everything you have and buy a ton of Apple stock!!! You can still get in on the debacle that's right around the corner. And by all means,tell all your iPhone owning friends to do the same!!!

I personally don't think the iPhone is the right device for me, but Apple is the definitive King of Marketing. They can make you think that you absolutely need their product, and their exponential growth is a phenomena and I highly respect them as a company from a business standpoint.

Sure... It's called propaganda. You see,hear and are exposed to it 24/7 and it works on most people. They have also enslaved thousands of people in the process. Therefore,I do not respect them as a company from a business standpoint.

You lost haha.
Samsung will sell around 40m smartphones in q1.
The gap will only continue to increase and until October quarter you'll have like 55:20 on Samsung side.
If I couldn't stand your posting I'd join that bet too.

other than taco dreaming.. 6 percent jump is massive for how expensive that stock already is. I bet there are a few happy rich peeps out there in stock land today.

More the Apple stock jump, the more I wished I bought their stock back in 2003. Who would of known...

all those people that held onto it when they were worth next to nothing are wiping their butts with dollar bills now. lol.
