    After the bell Tuesday, Apple posted first-quarter revenue and net income that shattered what analysts had been projecting.
    The company earned $13.87 a share on revenue of $46.3 billion, versus Wall Street’s view of $10.15 a share on sales of $39 billion.
    Stock of the electronics and computer company is halted for late trading.

    I would like to see a breakdown as to where the money is coming in from like how much is from iPhone sales and app store sales compared to computer sales. iTunes has got to be a good chunk of that as well. Obviously minus the computer part, for now anyways, I think Android will start seeing numbers like this eventually too. They are implementing Google Music to compete with iTunes, the phones combined are now outselling the iPhone. Obviously app prices are much lower on Android so it might be hard to compete there but I think Google should use this as motivation to continue to grow Android, which I am sure they are!
