Apple is on a momentous roll. From Bloomberg:
Apple Inc. quickly dispensed with a $1 billion lawsuit by iPod users claiming software updates for the device were meant to block competitors, as a jury ruled for the company after only three hours of deliberations.
3 hours? That was quick. But who cares? It’s the iPod, right.
While iPod sales have fallen dramatically after the 2007 debut of the iPhone, iTunes, software and services accounted for one-tenth of the company’s revenue in the 2014 fiscal year.
Which means the iPod, a product of diminishing value and attention at Apple, makes more money that all of Apple’s smartphone and tablet competitors, save Samsung.
