One day after
announcing a $43 million profit, Apple held their shareholders meeting at the campus in Cupertino, CA. CEO Steve Jobs saved a surprise for the crowd.
As reported earlier today on MacCentral, Jobs told the assembled shareholders that
Apple has shipped their five millionth iMac and that he looks forward to “shipping the 10 millionth iMac a few years from now.”
Speaking on the future of Apple, Jobs told the shareholders “the company must continue creating great products despite continued uncertainty in the global economy,” according to a
report on News.com.
“Our economic crystal ball is foggy,” Jobs said. “We’re going to have play the hand we’re dealt.”
Jobs also answered questions from shareholders about the lack of women or people of color on Apple’s board. Adding minorities would truly help Apple “Think Different,” one shareholder said.
Jobs accepted the argument and said “the company hasn’t yet found any women or minorities that it believes would be a good fit. But he added that it is Apple’s fault for not looking hard enough,” according to the News.com report.
