Monster quarter for Apple. 1.61 million Macs (biggest quarter ever) and 8.7 million iPods.
If you’ll remember, the Macalope made a conservative bet of 8.1 million iPods and he’s happy to be wrong.
And, for the silly pundits who like to compare quarter to quarter, 8.7 million in iPod sales is Apple’s second-best quarter ever. Up year-over-year and from the previous two quarters.
Also, in a positive sign, the company apparently did provide at least some guidance for the current quarter. Matt Deatherage had posted about concerns (antler tip to Daring Fireball) earlier that the options problem might make that impossible.
