Come back to CNET News.com at 2 p.m. PDT (although we sincerely hope you never leave) for a live blog of Apple's second-quarter earnings conference call.
The Mac shipments, iPhone momentum, and Apple's forecast for the next quarter, which tends to dictate how the investment community responds to the earnings reports. Reporters are not allowed to ask questions during the calls, only the financial analysts are granted that privilege, which usually means you have to sit through a couple of minutes of "great quarter, guys."are
The numbers themselves will probably come out around 1:15 p.m., and we'll get something up quickly after they are released.
