Episode 6 – Apple earnings preview, new iPods, iPhone ads

We took a break last week as we were both traveling, but we’re back this week with Episode 6. We moved our Question of the Week to the beginning of the episode this week, as it provides useful context for our discussion of Apple’s earnings, which are due next week. Jan talks through Apple’s earnings release process, and provides some beginner’s notes on what to look for and how Apple reports, as well as providing a deeper dive into Apple’s reporting trends. We also talk about some specifics of what to expect next Tuesday.

Our other topics this week are the new iPods Apple announced, the iPhone ads the company recently released, and the public betas of iOS and OS X, which Aaron has been trying out. Our Pick of the Week feature also returns, this time around with something rather different.

We invite listeners to submit questions for subsequent weeks in the comments below, on Twitter (@jandawson, @aaronmiller), or via email (jan at jackdawresearch dot com).

As ever, you can also find the podcast on iTunes, in the Overcast app, or your own favorite podcast app. Here is the RSS feed for the podcast if you want to add it manually to your app of choice.
