Great set of charts which highlight Apple’s revenue and profit picture since Steve Jobs returned in 1997. Chris Jade in The Apple Blog:
Fiscal year or calendar year, it just doesn’t matter, either way 2009 will be the first year the company sells 10 million Macs.
While Mac sales continue to grow, and iPhone sales skyrocket, iPod sales (except for the iPod touch) have leveled off. The bad news and the good news:
The bad news is that the phenomenal growth the iPod enjoyed from 2004 through 2007 appears to be over. The good news is that’s still more than 50 million iPods per year. For FY 2009, projections are for just under 54 million iPods to be sold, which would be just under the record of 54 million sold last year.
Today marks the end of fiscal 2009 for Apple.
