FYI/TMI: Apple Makes Money, Steven Tyler Makes Love
(In an effort to keep you fully informed, and fully entertained, below we present today's FYI and TMI — news you need and news that's, well, sometimes needless….)
Apple Reports 4Q Profit
Apple reported revenue of $36 billion and a net profit of $8.2 billion for its fiscal fourth quarter ending Sept. 29, up from $28.3 billion in revenue and a $6.6 billion profit from the year-ago quarter. Despite the increase, Apple missed analysts' expectations. Sales of iPhones reached 26.9 million, a 58 percent increase compared to the year-ago quarter, and iPad sales totaled 14 million, up 26 percent. Sales of 5.3 million iPods represented a 19 percent decline from the year-ago quarter. Additionally, on Oct. 23 Apple revealed the iPad mini, a thinner and lighter version of the iPad.
Steven Tyler: People Need To Make More Love
According to Aerosmith's Steven Tyler, the world would be a better place if people started having more love in an elevator … or anywhere for that matter. "What's missing in the world is that people don't get laid enough," the singer candidly revealed in an interview with the Guardian. "The world doesn't make enough love." Such comments should come as no surprise to music fans familiar with the frontman, who admitted that "Aerosmith was all about sex" in his 2011 autobiography, Does The Noise In My Head Bother You? Ahh, the sound of sweet emotion.
