    Looks like I have pushed a few buttons here, lmao.
    As I stated so you can understand, I understand about making a profit, I don't do what I do for free or for the exercise.
    I think it's because there is alot that is missed thru translation(so to speak) in these blogs. It's not easy expressing intentions or meaning in these forums. I responded to your post as well. However after reading it again I understood it a little better. Of course my interpretation could be wrong or muddled as well.

    Isn't the third quarter not over?
    Fiscal yr and calendar yr are different. Fiscal starts 1 Oct.

    Good work Apple, all the more reason to innovate and bring us better quality products. People ^ complaining about the $$$ they make is pointless. Do you even have the slightest clue how many people they have in their pockets? This is BIG business, if they don't see $$$ like that you'll have to start modding Androids. lol They went almost $1 billion over projections meaning w/ a $175 million bumper loss they still made $725 million more than they anticipated. WOWZERS!
    I would have my URL here so you could hear our music but apparently that's sig spam. WTF?

    Something so wrong about a company making that much money, how greedy can you be? As a business owner I understand about making a buck, but come on............This seems just sinful to me.
    If it was your company making all that money would you come here and cry about it? Lol.

    Correct. And might I add... Wonderful thing about our business market is, we are not regulated on our price. If the consumer pays then so be it... Just wish the medical field was...I got injured in Afganistan and OMG the price of pills and such. Now that's an argument..

    If you want to see price hikes take a look at the biz market in Vegas... ;-). Lol

    It could/may also be one of the reasons that our economy/country is struggling. Not sayin' it is, to start another rant, just saying. If you gouge the consumer, then he passes it on to the next guy and so on. It's like the song that never ends.

    Oh my, you were wounded, shouldn't the VA take care of that for you? Bless you. I thank you for serving.

    If they made it from some big scam then that's wrong but what's wrong about it legitimately making money off of products?

    Post on this already.

    It is called the Fiscal Year. They go by a 12 month period not by a calandar year. Most companies and countries differ but here is an example of the US government fiscal year schedule.

    1st Quarter: October 1, 2009 - December 31, 2009
    2nd Quarter: January 1, 2010 - March 31, 2010
    3rd Quarter: April 1, 2010 - June 30, 2010
    4th Quarter: July 1, 2010 - September 30, 2010

    If you you have a successful
    Product than you will make money. Crapy product poor business model and possible in a socialistic company than you can bet apple wouldn't make as much. Thank god we live in a country that allows people to
    Prosper from their hard work and ideas.
    And from the exploitation of overworked little brown people across the ocean. Yay capitalism

    Interesting thread though....

    You cannot be "gouging" someone for a product like a cell phone. Its a completely non essential item. If they wanted to charge 2K for the thing they could.... it would not be gouging.

    ^ Price gouging is a pejorative term referring to a situation in which a seller prices goods or commodities much higher than is considered reasonable or fair.
    Is this fair? Your call.
