Thursday, July 14, 2005 - Apple's Products Continue to Pay Off - Apple's Products Continue to Pay Off: "The results suggest that Apple has reversed a decade-long slide in its share of global PC sales. Apple sold 35% more Macs in the quarter than it did a year earlier. That's about three times the growth rate of the global PC industry, according to Apple and analysts.
In the case of the iPod, Apple has also begun selling through the ultimate channel to mainstream consumers for the first time in the company's recent history: Wal-Mart Stores Inc. Yesterday, Apple executives said last quarter it expanded a limited pilot test of iPod shuffle sales through the Bentonville, Ark., retailer to 95% of Wal-Mart stores in the U.S. Other iPod models are now in about a quarter of U.S. stores, and Apple is considering expanding iPod sales to Wal-Mart's overseas stores."
