V Highlights from Apple's Q1 results
V 4.13 million Mac. 23% year over year growth and 8 times the PC industry growth average.

V Angels trump cannibals
* Yes the iPad is cannibalizing PC sales, but the halo effect seems to make up for it
V Apple's lower share in the PC market means there is less they lose.
* If someone buys an iPad instead of a netbook Apple doesn't really lose much do they?
V Asymco finds 65% of Apple's revenue came from iOS devices
* Not surprising. 20% off the sales were OS X (Mac and OS)
* Rest in iTunes, peripherals, services, etc.
