Seven reasons to love being Tim Cook right now

Lewis Curdie  2 days ago

I’ve mentioned it a few times recently, but all those analysts and “experts” who spent 2012/13 suggesting that Apple had lost the plot must be feeling prettaaaaaay silly right now.

Everything seems to be coming up Apple this year, and we’ve heard countless stories of abundant positivity in the past week alone. It really is becoming quite ridiculous (in a good way) – it’s just win after win after win after win for Team Cook.

Apple just had the best quarter ever. Of anyone. EVER

Apple just had the best quarter ever. Of anyone. EVER

Lewis Curdie  3 days ago

It’s funny to think that everyone was predicting doom and gloom for Apple throughout 2013 in particular (here, here, here), largely on account of the Californians’ inability to “innovate” and the loss of Steve Jobs. What a load of nonsense.

Hang your heads in complete and utter shame, analysts and “experts”, as Apple has just enjoyed the most successful quarter of any company in any industry ever.

On a similar note, a couple of stories show the US going absolutely iPhone crazy, with half of all 4Q14 smartphone activations being of the Apple variety, and Alaska in particular embracing the ubiquitous iPhone.
