So, Apple must have had a pretty dismal quarter, right? I mean look at those guys’ quotes!

Apple reported record earnings of $14.50 per share on sales of $57.6 billion Monday — beating both its and Wall Street’s expectations.
51 million iPhones in sold.
26 million iPads sold.
4,8 million Macs sold.
6 million iPods sold.
In. One. Quarter.

Oh yeah, 160 BILLION in cash. Clearly doomed.
