Well, they didn’t hit the $40 billion revenue threshold — not even close. The actual number was $35 billion — a miss by Wall Street standards, as it was *just* $1 billion ahead of Apple’s actual guidance (which is always low).

Why the dampened numbers? iPhone sales dropped to 26 million, which was a sharper drop-off than many expected. Considering Apple makes most of its money off the iPhone, this led to the depressed revenue. The iPad had record sales of 17 million, but that surge couldn’t offset the iPhone drop.

The Mac sales held steady quarter-to-quarter at 4 million, which was also less than some were expecting given the new MacBook Airs and the Retina MacBook Pros (though they were only on the market for the last few weeks of the quarter).

iPod sales were better than expected (still down year-to-year), but they simply don’t matter much anymore in the bigger picture. 

A lot of people are noting Apple’s relatively weak guidance for Q4 — $34 billion of revenue. It seems to be setting up just like last year where Apple shows some (relative) weakness ahead of a massive Q1. Think of it as the sea receding before a tidal wave hits.

iOS 6 is a lock. A new iPhone is almost for sure coming as well. New iPod touches and maybe a new iPod nano are likely as well. There may be a new iMac and/or maybe another Retina MacBook. And then there’s that iPad mini…

For whatever reason, it appears that Apple is putting all its chips into the holiday season. You might think that’s because it’s when sales are the strongest anyway. But it may simply be because that’s when the products will be done.

Apple always interesting even when loosing

Simplicity

Its the simple things that make our days beautiful, its the little gestures, the simple reminders that others are always there for you. We tend to think its the big extravagant gifts or surprises that will make us happy (although those are always welcomed with open arms) it is truly the gatherings of those we love and the laugh from the heart we cherish and remember. Happiness does not have to be expensive or extravagant, happiness is simple and shared.

Warning: Life can get you in the back

I won’t begin to claim that I understand life or how to go about it. Nor will I just say that and go on to explain it anyways. But If there is anything I have noticed its that its a wave or a crescendo of some sorts where reaching the top means that you expect some sort of drop or fall. However, the beauty of life is you get to pick how bad the fall is and how much it can effect you. That all depends on your perspective and how much you can trust yourself to get back up after a hard fall because they’re bound to happen. But then again all this is easier sad then done and falls are relevant. To me it killed when I had a huge fight with my brother I literally felt my heart ache but right across the world at the same moment someone might have lost a brother, sister, son or mother. Are these comparable? Of course not. Are they both falls? Yes. 

You aren’t tested with what you cannot handle so if it happened to you then you can handle it. So know that, internalize it and try to use that as your solace every time you fall. I know I will… hopefully.
