The most profitable quarter of any company ever. Let that sink in. Coming off a better-than-expected holiday season, tech giant Apple made a record $18 billion profit from an estimated $74.6 billion in revenue in one quarter.
That's more money than the worldwide coffee industry will generate in a year.
And while sales for the iPad have continued to fall this quarter, it is still performing better than any other tablet on the market. That means you, Samsung Galaxy, Amazon Kindle Fire and Lenovo Yoga. Apple still controls more than 20 percent of the tablet market.
