    Lol I like how Kevin was missing for the iPhone/iPad sales tanking. He must have been so upset he had to go for a bike ride huh?

    Great podcast as always guys.

      Don’t know if true hipster or just ironic.

      Tanking, strange way to put it.

      iPhone sales were up 17% to last years quarter, down 14% from last quarter (the holiday period). It was the 3rd biggest quarter for iPhones in history.

      The iPad was down 16% from last years quarter, a fall yes, but ‘tanked’ seems a bit of an exaggeration.

      Sorry to use facts and not petty points scoring

      The numbers

      Apple sold 43.7 million iPhones, down 14 percent compared to the previous quarter but up 17 percent on the year-ago quarter. Revenues from the iPhone are down 20 percent compared to the last quarter but up 14 percent on the year-ago quarter.

      Apple sold 16.35 million tablets – iPads and iPad mini tablets – down 37 percent on the previous quarter and down 16 percent on the year-ago quarter. However, it still represents the fifth best quarter for the iPad, behind Q1 14, Q1 13, Q2 13, and Q3 12.
