Apple Ranked as Fastest-Growing Major Retailer in U.S.
Earlier this week, USA Today reported on research from retail sales analyst David Berman ranking Apple as the fastest-growing major retailer in the United States during the first quarter of this year, boosting its domestic sales by 80% over last year's numbers.
Calling Apple's sales "mind-boggling", Berman notes that Apple's brick-and-mortar retail stores are even outpacing the company's overall performance, growing by 90% year-over-year.
That increase accounted for one-fifth of all sales growth by publicly traded retailers in the U.S., according to a recent analysis of sales trends by retail sales expert David Berman. In part, that's a reflection of poor sales among most retailers. But it also highlights how Steve Jobs' technology giant is grabbing a big slice of market share in everything from smartphones to PCs.
Apple's year-over-year U.S. sales growth of $4.6 billion for the first quarter was followed by Amazon and Wal-Mart, with total sales growth from public retailers coming in at $23.2 billion.
Apple is set to announce its financial results for the second calendar quarter (third fiscal quarter) of the year next Tuesday, July 19th.

The iOS 16.4 update that is set to be released to the public in the near future includes voice isolation for cellular calls, according to notes that Apple shared today.
Apple says that Voice Isolation will prioritize your voice and block out the ambient noise around you, making for clearer phone calls where you can better hear the person you're chatting with and vice versa.
While year-over-year iPhone upgrades are not always groundbreaking, new features can begin to stack up over multiple generations. For example, the iPhone 15 Pro will be a notable upgrade for those who still have a three-year-old iPhone 12 Pro.

Apple quality is also anti competitive. They should be forced to have a larger number of defective units. While they are at it, how about letting their competitors write their advertising for them. Can we pass a law making Apple products ugly?
Or maybe because they employ ~50,000 people? They all get to keep their jobs?
Seriously, do you seriously think he's serious? In all seriousness, you need to find your funny bone and wake it up! :)
