Apple finally kills Gil Amelio’s legacy by numbers

Charles Arthur makes a valuable post on Apple’s recent financial numbers over on El Reg:

For years they’ve had to rely on people not looking too far back, and pointing just to the previous year or the previous quarter, and not asking questions like “Where did all your revenues go, then?” or “Why aren’t you selling as many computers as you did?” Now they can, 1984 style, just say that 2005 was their best-ever year so far.

Amidst all the ballyhoo about Apple’s much improved health, it’s often forgotten that’s only now getting beyond the position it was in ten years ago, in terms of the numbers of machines it’s shipping and its financial health.
