Apple Computer announced a $47 million quarterly profit yesterday, $2 million higher than Steve Jobs, interim chief executive, forecast at the Macworld show last week (see Newswire 8 January).
But there is a worm in the apple - shrinking revenues. Despite profits of 33 cents a share, compared to a loss of 96 cents a share ($120 million) a year ago, sales fell 26 per cent from $2.13 billion to $1.58 billion.
Analysts agree that Apple needs to address the sub-$1,000 personal computer market soon to bring in new users and remain profitable. The company?s chief financial officer, Fred Anderson, indicated that the company would branch into that market but refused to pre-announce products.
