  1. Knowing Apple, there won’t be some crazy number of iPods sold in the last quarter. My guess is they’ll sell between 1.1 and 1.3 million iPods. I’ve heard people saying it would be closer to 2 million, but I don’t believe it. Now don’t get me wrong, over 1 million iPods sold in a quarter is pretty good news to say the least, but I would be really surprised if they doubled last quarters units sold. Personally, I’m really interested to see how many iMacs have been booked so far. 26 hours and counting…

  2. I expect this last quarter’s numbers to be good. In my opinion, far more important to investors than last quarter’s numbers will be projections about this next holiday quarter.

    Now, of course I don’t expect AAPL to introduce any products at the earnings conference call, but I’m hoping that they will guide toward big revenue and profit increases.

  3. Apple will beat the street as usual (it’ll probably be a 20 cents per share profit instead of 18). Maybe one of these days they’ll realize Apple is alive and thriving and that they don’t need M$ or Intel’s help.
