    No mention of the patent infringement case. Wonder who they're s******* over this time.

    As for the class action suit, I can't believe they're going after apple. I'd think that other manufacturers sold a lot more product lying about these numbers (although it maybe part of a bigger conspiracy suit, like the monitor size one - maybe we all can get $20 off our next wireless product from Apple!).

    Seems like an appropriate typo, nice insight MacNN!

    If you get back those kind of sales increases with only a 9% increase in R&D, they should increase R&D spending a lot more than they are!

    I would think of the Fortune 500 companies in America, rthere are ZERO that do not have some pending lawsuit or nowadays patent infringemnt allegations. It's the dance of the class action attorneys and corporate attorneys who then meet secretly in Vegas to diviy up the proceeds ... :-)

    As long as you don;t have one like the RIM/Blackberry one where your cash on hand is 1.2 B and the settlement talks are around $1B - everything is normal ...

    Wireless class action?

    First, since when did Apple ever make a wireless modem? Router, yes. Adapters, yes. Keyboards and mice, yes. But the only modems I've ever seen from Apple are serial (a long time ago shortly after the Earth cooled), internal and only recently USB. No wireless ones at all. Some routers had internal modems built in but it was the router that was wireless, not the modem. There are plenty of wires internally linking the modem to the router.

    Secondly, who was deceived by the transfer rate. 54Mbps max throughput. It's wireless so you need to be at close range with no interference to be sure of getting that but I get it all the time. Perhaps these poor fools thought they'd get 5.4MBps or something. And yes I know this is a two way transmission rate. It was never portrayed to me as anything else. Next well have people suing Ford because they advertise a car has a certain amount of torque and some idiot interprets that as being able to break the sound barrier in 2nd gear. If you want to find out what the numbers in a new technology mean, all you have to do is read. The info is freely available.

    It's like the hard drive size debacle. The information was freely available to anyone who wanted to know. I have to go back to the early 90's to remember a hard drive that didn't have that spelled out on the label and that was probably because they hadn't invented 1GB hard drives yet. Let's just remember, kilo mean 1,000 not 1,024, and so on. So actually, the hard drive manufacturers were right and the rest of the computing industry was wrong due to generalising their base 2 conversion to base 10.

    Re: Stock Reaction

    Stock closed 13 cents off an all-time high today, with any luck we'll see further gains tomorrow. Not a whole lot of surprises with this filing, except perhaps the cap ex forecast, which in my opinion (particularly concerning the money being put toward stores) indicates that Apple's internal expectations are high for itself. That, and the more Apple stores are out there the more consumers are exposed to them. (IMHO, Apple Stores have been as key to driving Apple sales as the iPod itself.)

    Stock reaction

    After hours trading shows little extra gain. Doubt there would be any, as most big investors probably knew all this info already
