Apple will provide live streaming of the conference call on the financial results of the third quarter of fiscal 2012 from 14:00 on July 24, 2012 at here on Apple website. This webcast will be available for replay for approximately two weeks thereafter.
We have some suggestions and statements made during the conference call by analyzing the results in Europe and in some other countries, Tim Cook wanted to point out that in countries like Italy, France and Greece, the total revenue is falling , it seems that the only country with a positive increase of 30% is the United Kingdom, while other concerns are given by Germany, which is in the wake of the three countries mentioned above. We’ll see if things will evolve in the next quarter. But I am really amazed about the result that 4 millions of Macs are sold out, just make me feel WOW!
Tomorrow will can only officially confirmed about the release of new version of OS X, Mountain Lion , the ninth major release of Mac OS X. So friends just imagine and suggest your opinions and wait for the release Mac OS X: Mountain Lion. We will shortly update about it.
