MacVoices #21140 - MacVoices Live! - Thoughts on Apple's Quarterly Financial Results (1)

published 1 month ago by Chuck Joiner

Our MacVoices Live! discussion of Apple’s quarterly financial results took some decidedly offbeat turns. In Part 1, we touch on what effect stimulus money might have had on those results, how the continued changes to employment and work from home initiatives may have influenced things, and where that might go in the future. The panel of Jay Miller, Frank Petrie, Dave Ginsburg, Mike Schmitz, Jim Rea, and Mark Fuccio wrap up with the question of supply chain challenges for both Apple and the entire PC industry in the future.
