Apple’s Earnings Released Crushing Estimates and iPad Sales Soar

iPads, iPods, iPhones, Macs and iTunes oh my Jobs! Apple released first quarter results that surprised and beat the street with profit up $6.43 a share which was up from $3.67 last year and even beat Cramer’s “wild high” estimate of $6.

The creatively-titled “iHolder iPad Stand’ can hold your iPad (!) at 3 different viewing angles for your comfort. The stand has cutouts so all the necessary ports are available for use, and is compatible with both the WiFi and 3G models.

Gartner legitimizing iPad for Corporate Use

iPad is here Gartner has recommended that CEOs clear obstacles that prevent IT departments from taking advantage of the iPad according to TUAW.

Stephen Prentice, a VP and Gartner fellow, said in the report: “It is not usually the role of the CEO to get directly involved in specific technology device decisions, but Apple’s iPad is an exception. It is more than just the latest consumer gadget. CEOs and business leaders should initiate a dialog with their CIOs about if they have not already done so.”
