Apple Announces Highest Q4 Earnings in 9 Years

MacNN reports on Apples Q4 financial results. Apple Earned $106M or $0.22 per diluted share. This was above the estimated $0.18 per diluted share predicted. The increased earnings are mainly attributed to a 500% increase in iPod sales over Q4 of 2003. as well as an all around increase in portables and desktop CPU sales.

Apple Rumors
iPod A/V, Tiger and New iBooks

MacGadget.de is reporting that Apple may update the iBooks this Tuesday. While my sources are saying that the iBooks and PowerBooks will be updated soon, they have not heard a specific date. They could also not rule out a Tuesday release.

Apple traditionally releases updates on Tuesdays to maximize press time. It would not be a stretch to beleive that Apple is going to release the new iBooks in line with the opening of the EDUCAUSE Conference in Denver Colorado, October 19th.

A number of sites have reported that Amazon.com has "let the cat out of the bag" on the release date of Tiger. Amazon reported a release date of March 31, 2005 for Apple's Latest OS but has since relisted the OS as discontinued.

iPod A/V
As I reported in June of 2004, Apple appears to be readying the iPod A/V for launch. Many rumor sites have picked up this story and are reporting that it will be compatible with iPhoto for users to carry their photo libraries in their iPod. My sources still contend that the iPod A/V is being designed to allow users to download full length Music Videos and hopefully feature length films for viewing on the 2" color LCD or through the A/V ports on a Television.

Crystal Ball

Crystal Ball is my take on the magic eight ball. Nothing extravagant except it seems to know more than it should. Just type in a question and hit enter. Crystal ball will give a sometimes brutally honest answer. Have fun but don't take it too seriously.
