    The title of this article is misleading. You’re only talking about the fourth quarter, and it’s only about total shipments, not actual sales. Experts say that Samsung has outdone Apple last year in terms of the number of units of smartphones sold.

      Thanks for that but it is agency news… and we rely on the facts given by them… thanks for that we will try to update the title with more inputs

    For Thanksgiving, I’m making some special cinnamon apples that I always make for the holidays, but I’m not sure what kind of apple to use. I’m essentially cutting them into pieces, throwing them in a sautee pan, and cooking them in brown sugar and cinnamon. Keeping that in mind, would I want a sweeter type of apple, or more tart? If you have a specific type that you think will go well in this kind of recipe, please let me know. Thanks in advance.

  4. Also it doesnt matter what type of apple every apple makes me feel sick. It is a recent thing. Only over the past 3 years this has happened before i used to love apples i ate one or two everyday. But for some reason i stopped doing that for around a month and the next time i had a apple it made me feel sick and it still makes me sick to eat apples. What is wrong with me?

  5. On the US Apple store for a 32G iPod Touch it’s $499 which is approx. €320. However on the Irish apple store the same product is €430. Has is got something to do with the technology involved? Nothing is mentioned on the Apple store.

    The apple juice I buy is called “Simply Apple” and is made from actual apples. The average apple contains about 10% daily value of vitamin C and yet the whole bottle contains none. What could be the reason for that?
    By the way, I know they sell fortified apple juices, but I don’t like those.

    Im thinking about all the different types of jobs that are assocciated with Apple and I am wondering if a job for Apple would be a good thing to look into. How long (in years) is Apple expected to be on the incline or in the “high business” range? Will Apple be the company to keep up with society? It seems as if they have progressed quite impressively with the public and society’s demands. How well will they keep up their creativity?

    How long does it take, for Apple, to take the money out of your account? I wanted to purchase an app, and needed to know.
