    This is an interesting and eye opening read. It pits the revenues of the iPad and iPhone, plus a few of the other Apple mainstays, such as their accessory business and iTunes against other real world companies, like Facebook, Yahoo, McDonalds, Coca Cola, Google, eBay etc.

    Apple earnings: iPhone revenues are as big as Amazon.

    For instance, it states that iTunes revenue is just slightly larger than that generated by eBay, which is staggering.

    Thats an eye opening comparison.

    Over at CB some folks are under the misconception that Apple missed targets. Don't know how they came up with that but hey....it would be funny if those making that case read this.

    Some people over at CB are under the impression that Blackberry will once again be a big player in the consumer mobile market, too. So that doesn't surprise me either lol

    Apple is doing so bad, they can't afford to produce 1 new iPhone 6.

    Haha one of my guilty pleasures is just lurking over on the CB forums and reading the interesting threads that pop up. Most of the members over there are a cool aid drink away from becoming a cult LOL.

    Let's write an editorial asking James to shut CB down, on the premise that it gives MN a bad name.

    CB is pretty much the only MN forums I don't at least check out regularly.

    I think I might have to now...

    You might be disgusted. I was. I got an infraction for "trolling" simply because I posted a poll asking how many, and why, used BB. Apparently that's trolling.
