  • According to Forrester research, Apple can expect sales growth of more than 50% over the next two years in light of the popularity of mobile apps. “They’ll be bigger than IBM next year, and they’ll be bigger than HP the year after that,”said founder George Colony. (Bloomberg)
  • Oracle reported its third quarter numbers for the fiscal year with a jump of overall revenues by 37% to $8.76 billion and a 78% spike in quarterly profits thanks to expanding sales of the company’s software. (The Register)
  • Research in Motion, however, wasn’t so lucky. The company’s fourth quarter revenues disappointed, with sales of $5.56 billion compared with $5.65 billion and a current quarter outlook that also falls short: revenues of between $5.2 billion and $5.6 billion, and earnings of between $1.47 and $1.55 a share — off from the predicted $5.6 billion and earnings of $1.65  a share.
