An interesting blurb from CEO Tim Cook during Thursday’s earnings conference call regarding component shortages and Apple’s recently introduced iMac:

In terms of iPad and iPhone… I don’t see a component shortage gating us for the quarter in the numbers that we’ve given you and the guidance… i think we saw some challenges there and feel good about our position… in terms of general shortages… on the iMac we’ll be constrained for the full quarter in a significant way… there will be a short amount of time to manufacturer and ramp those and I expect demand to be robust… we will have a significant shortage
