FORTUNE — Starting New Years Eve, I’m going to be on a four-week walkabout in parts of the world where Internet access is often sketchy. So except for gathering and sorting analysts estimates, this blogger will be on vacation.

By the time Apple AAPL releases the results of its first fiscal quarter of 2013  — the Christmas quarter that ended  Saturday — I expect to be on an island in the Gulf of Thailand. Apple 2.0’s quarterly Earnings Smackdown report — listing of the best and worst performances by institutional and independent Apple analysts — will eventually get posted, but maybe not until I’m back in Brooklyn.

While I’m away, Apple 2.0 will be manned by guest writers.
