    AAPL takes off in after-hours

    reached $468, nearly $50 above closing price. Now 'settling down' to $458.

    Keep in mind that after-hours trading is thin and highly volatile. Overnight gains (or losses) can disappear at the next trading day.

    key quote

    we have some amazing new products in the pipeline.

    translation: you ain't seen nothin' yet. Apple HDTVs and ???.

    As a shareholder... I'm grinning ear-to-ear.

    if $450/share holds

    Apple's market cap will be $418 billion... I think that's enough to put Apple ahead of ExxonMobil again as the US' most valuable company.

    (I read recently that PetroChina is the world's most valuable company, but no info on its market cap)

    minor refresh

    >>iPods continued a persistent decline, sliding 21 percent to 15.4 million

    Only a minor refresh for iPods in 2011. Hence the lack of sales (if you could call 15.4m disappointing).

    U.S. Jobs

    Puts a lie to the claim that manufacturing jobs at Apple have to be in China to make them competitive.

    And what if their plants were in the U.S. and they "only" made $45B?
