Apple yesterday announced their financial results for the second calendar quarter (and Q3 for fiscal quarter) 2010. Apple broke company records with $15.7 billion in revenue with $3.25 billion in profit. That works out to be #.51 per diluted share.

Apple also mentioned that they shipped 3.47 million Macs this quarter, which is up 33% from a year ago. They also sold 8.4 million iPhones, up 61% from a year ago. iPods are continuing on their downward slope with an 8% unit decline (9.41 million sold) compared to this time last year.
