  • "Apple is in a league of its own: It's an Apple of a different color. What Tim Cook and his execs pulled off this week is nothing short of amazing, as the tech giant reported record earnings and the stock on Friday came within spitting distance of a $700 billion market cap."  New York Post 6:19 AM
  • "How Apple left Microsoft for dust: When Microsoft stock was at a record high in 1999, and its market capitalisation was nearly $US620 billion, the notion that Apple Computer would ever be bigger; let alone twice as big; was laughable."  New York Times 6:44 AM
  • "Apple Looks Ahead: After Record Setting iPhone Sales, Company Eyes Other Products" Valley News 6:33 AM
  • "Tim Cook Defused Steve Jobs' Thermonuclear War, Then He Took Down Android" ["Apple weakened the chipsets in Android by forcing the manufacturers to follow them on the 64-bit roadmap. Resources, time, and developmental energies were directed away from competing directly with Apple and into something that has taken far longer than planned. Through careful financial management, Apple built up the resources to invest heavily in component hedging."]  Forbes 1/31
  • "Maybe this is the real reason Apple made the iPhone bigger" ["A big part of the iPhone's success can likely be attributed to one decision: To finally offer it in larger sizes, matching the phones that Android rivals, such as Samsung and Motorola, have made for years. On Apple's earnings call, CEO Tim Cook said the company saw a record number of new iPhone customers and more people switching from Android than for any of the previous three iPhone versions."]  Quartz 1/31
