After Apple announced its earnings late yesterday, Twitter was abuzz with amazing facts about the company:

  • Profit was up 94% in the last quarter alone.
  • Apple is selling 500,000 iPhones & IPads every day, reaping a daily profit of $125 million.
  • Apple’s cash reserves ($110 billion) would fill 50 Olympic swimming pools with dollar bills (how’d they figure that?).
  • Apple has sold 67 million iPads in two years. It took them 24 years to sell that many Macintosh computers.
My question: is that why Siri seems so slow to respond to basic commands this week?  Is she mad that she didn’t have a profit-sharing deal with the folks in Cupertino?
