Apple’s Market Cap Nearly as Big as Google’s

Speaking of Dan “Fake Steve” Lyons, he has a good summary of Apple’s quarterly results for Newsweek:

Sales of Macintosh computers were strong too, perhaps thanks to a bit of a price cut that Apple introduced during the quarter. Apple sold 2.6 million computers, up 4 percent from last year. With market research analysts expecting the overall PC market to decline by as much as 5 percent this year, “this puts us 7 to 9 percent ahead of the market,” Cook said.

Sales of portable Macs — MacBooks and MacBook Pros — did even better, growing 13 percent in the quarter.

Maybe those Microsoft “Laptop Hunter” ads will kick in next quarter.
