Apple’s been in a good financial position for a while now, with a butt-load of cash in the bank and lots of income coming in during one of the worst recessions since the great depression. But this news from their quarterly report call, well this is big. From the great Steve Jobs himself:

“If you annualize our quarterly revenue, it’s surprising that Apple is now a $50+ billion company,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO.”

Of course, there’s this little tidbit that he snuck in, too:

“The new products we are planning to release this year are very strong, starting this week with a major new product that we’re really excited about.”

Well coat me in chocolate and call me a snickers bar.

There’s no doubt it anyone’s mind that he’s referring to the Unicorn Tablet, but it will be interesting to see how it all goes down. Is the tablet the first thing that he talks about, or will it be his famous “one more thing?” Either way, I’m about to go into cardiac arrest with all this info. I’ll be lucky if I make it to Wednesday without getting on blood pressure medication.
