Apple, Google, Nokia, eBay, Sony and Microsoft all reported their Q4 results this week, but how did they fair and who looks like they are going to be struggling for the rest of 2009?Apple
It seems even in a recession people want to buy Apples. Unlike many other tech companies struggling in the current climate, the company has again revealed record results. Apple posted record revenue of $10.17 billion and record net quarterly profits of $1.61 billion. In growth terms that means Apple sold 2,524,000 Macs during the quarter, a 9% growth over the year-ago quarter and sold 22,727,000 iPods - apparently a record - and 3% up from the same time last year while the quarterly iPhone sales come in at 4,363,000.
