Our Aussie Apple Ramblings
Story 1

Apple exceeds guidance

Apple Reports Record First Quarter Results

The holiday quarter is historically Apple’s biggest and Q1 2017, which ends December 31, 2016, was no exception.

* Apple has reported
* 78.3M iPhones
* 13.1M iPads,
* 5.4M Macs sold
* as well as “all-time record quarterly revenue” of $78.4 billion.

Yes, yes there was an extra week, BUT there always is every few years. And it could have still broken there record if they reported daily figures.

Story 2

Tim Cook bullish on Services

Not widely reported but Tim Cook believes that the “Services” sector of their income will DOUBLE this financial year!

Maybe TV deals, maybe something special in iCloud ?? any suggestions

Story 3

While searching in the app store the other day

I saw there was a game based on ABC (Australia) Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries

Released by Tin Man Games are no stranger to gamebooks and fiction. In fact, they may be one of the oldest and certainly most prolific developer on the App Store in that genre. But with their latest one, Miss Fisher and the Deathly Maze, they try something new: the visual novel genre.

Coming this Wednesday to iOS and later to Android, it stars Phryne Fisher as she tries to apprehend the ever-illusive and mysterious Murdoch Foyle. It’s based on ABC1’s show and could potentially be a great story. The art is definitely quite attractive:}


AMZ get together

We are planning a couple of Aussie Mac Zone get togethers in April. eMail Garth or myself your Suburb so we can figure out central locations.

The more people for each state will decide where we go.

A few people have emailed so far.

I’m thinking Saturday April 1, for Sydney as Glen will be down from Queensland (Also it is Apples Birthday)
