SANS - Survey on application security programs

The Apple juggernaut continues to pick up speed.

Cupertino today announced its financial results for its second fiscal quarter of 2010, which ended March 27. During that quarter, revenues were $13.5bn, up from $9.1bn during the same period last year, a 49 per cent jump. Quarterly net profit also soared from $1.6bn in last year's second quarter to $3.1bn in the just-finished quarter - that's a jump of 94 per cent.

Mac sales increased, as well, totaling 2.94 million units, which was up 33 per cent from the same period last year. The iPhone also continued to be strong, with Apple selling 8.75 million phones - an increase of 131 per cent over last year's second quarter. Only the iPod slowed - its sales of 10.89 million units slipped one per cent year-on-year.

Apple's press release announcing the results made no mention of sales figures for the iPad, but in a canned statement Steve Jobs said "users are loving it". He also noted that his company has "several more extraordinary products in the pipeline for this year".

One undoubtedly being the recently outed iPhone 4G. ®
