Video is very clear and explicit! This will totally destroy ALL production for the Ipad and Iphone for months. AAPL will not be able to get parts for several months and their revenues and profits will go to near zero. Horror or horros---sell, sell, sell immediately and use your rational faculties later! I wonder if Zax and his team have anything to do with this?

You seem to belittle the situation.
It's not clear how much damage there has been to the plant and any product lines.

What do they mean by an "operating room"?

They say that's where the explosion occurred.

I also wonder what kind of dust would cause an explosion.

I'm sure they deal with flammable solvents - maybe that's the cause?
Dust from organic sources at the right concentration can explode, and that happens with grain all the time. You could have aluminum dust which could be very explosive or perhaps some other reactive metal (aluminum given the right condition is very reactive).

But I would imagine that there should be proper venting for any type of work that involves dust and solvents- maybe someone was doing something improperly or vents weren't working (and alarm systems connected were ignored or malfunctioning) or maybe conditions in there were such that there isn't any venting. phhft.

>>Probably just going to hunker down in the basement with a few rifles and a case of MREs.<<

Bill, you don't have to confine yourself to MREs. I understand Domino's will be delivering to bunkers right up until the Rapture. Just remember to get your order in well before 6PM, since official policy prevents Domino's drivers from crossing lakes of fire.

Well, the founder of Dominos is this religious guy, so when you order your pizza, it might come with extra salvation to help you make your way.

Me? I live in NYC, therefore I wonder at those in NYC who order Domino and I cannot comprehend the need for frozen pizza in the supermarket since the local pizza places are unbeatable.

Apple makes huge inroads in enterprise as corporate Mac sales surge 66%

appleinsider.com 
(several charts available at link)

By Neil Hughes
Published: 11:45 AM EST


Mac sales in the enterprise during Apple's last fiscal quarter grew a whopping 66 percent, significantly outpacing the rest of the PC market, which grew just 4.5 percent in the enterprise.

The data from Apple's previous fiscal quarter was highlighted on Friday by analyst Charlie Wolf with Needham & Company. He said though he originally viewed success in the enterprise as a "one-quarter blip," it now appears to be a "durable platform" for Apple.

"Mac shipments in the business market grew at a torrid 66.0% pace, an order of magnitude higher than the 4.5% shipment growth rate of the business market," Wolf wrote.

The trend is particularly interesting because between 2007 and 2009, Mac sales in the enterprise stagnated even as the platform was taking off with consumers. The trend has only reversed over the past four quarters.

Mac sales are now estimated to be 3 percent of total PC business sales, which is the highest total Apple has seen since the second quarter of 1997.

Broken down my market segment, Mac shipments grew 94.7 percent in the "very large business" category, 75.5 percent with "large businesses," 58.1 percent with "medium businesses," and 90.4 percent with "small businesses." All of those totals well exceeded grwoth in the overall PC market.

Apple's newfound success in the enterprise helped the company outpace its already tremendous growth in the consumer market. Last quarter, Mac shipments in the worldwide home market grew 21.6 percent, while the overall PC market dropped 4.4 percent.

Apple also saw a whopping 155.6 percent growth in Mac sales to governments, compared with just 2.3 percent for PCs. And while education sales grew just 1 percent for Apple, the overall market saw sales slide 6.5 percent last quarter.

"Notwithstanding its premium prices compared with Windows PCs, the Mac should continue to grow faster than the PC market, propelled by the halo effects now emanating from the iPod, iPhone and iPad along with the international rollout of Apple Stores," Wolf said.

In its second fiscal quarter of 2011, Apple reported sales of 3.76 million Macs, a year over year increase of 28 percent and the best-ever total for March quarter. Mac sales helped Apple's profits to grow 95 percent in the three-month frame.

During the company's quarterly earnings conference call, Apple Chief Operating Officer Tim Cook acknowledged the success Apple and the Mac platform have has had lately in the enterprise, though he did not delve into specific numbers. He did state he believes that the iPad, which has seen swift adoption among major companies, as created a "halo effect" for the Mac, resulting in even more sales for the platform.

If you'd rather not, no. It's just some folks seem rather tone deaf to tragedy.

No, but neither do we have to make light of the circumstances surrounding their deaths.

I don't think Emil was doing that, however, though it may have appeared so. To me, his post simply poked fun at those who react like chickens with their heads cut off every time there's a news story involving Apple.
