WSJ.com - Apple Scores With Cheaper Lines

WSJ.com - Apple Scores With Cheaper Lines: "Apple's iPod business continued to boom, despite a growing number of competitors offering digital music players. Apple sold 5.3 million iPods in the quarter, generating revenue of $1.01 billion, or 31% of the company's total. That was more than six times as many iPods as Apple sold in the same quarter a year earlier and nearly four times the iPod revenue it generated.
Apple's core Mac business, meanwhile, showed brisk growth, with the number of Macs sold increasing 43% to 1.07 million units from 749,000 units a year ago. The value of Mac sales rose to $1.49 billion from $1.16 billion a year earlier. That's especially strong unit growth when compared with about 10% growth in the overall PC business, according to Rob Cihra, an analyst at Fulcrum Global Partners."

Apple's 10th life seems to be going well so far...
