Apple revenue, profits up in iPad-driven quarter

Sales of the new iPad helped Apple's line during its fiscal third quarter.

Sales of the new iPad helped Apple's line during its fiscal third quarter. The company reported Wednesday that revenue for the three-month period ended June 30 grew 22 percent over last year while profits rose 20.5 percent.

Apple's sales hit $35 billion for the third quarter of 2012, up from $28.6 billion last year while profits rose to $8.8 billion from $7.3 billion. Earnings for the quarter were $9.32 a share, up 20 percent from last year. Reported earnings topped Apple's forecast, but fell short of Wall Street expectations of $10.35 per share on projected revenue of $37 billion.

We'll have more detail on Apple's third-quarter performance later today. Apple is hosting a conference call with Wall Street analysts to go over the numbers; you can follow the live coverage on Macworld.com.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
