Interesting observation about the iTunes store: So long, break-even

http://www.asymco.com/2013/03/22/so-long-break-even/

This is really amazing. Even though Apple is mainly focused on selling hardware and they do software to support selling hardware (I should know, I'm writing this on my iPad 4 and I have my iPhone 5 in my pocket) they make quite a few more bucks on the software front.

Even though $2B in yearly profit would be great for any other company, for Apple it's still just a small percentage of their business... but it's there... and as we can see, even marginal business can bring nice profits.

It's a good idea to have a side business that (a) supports your main business (b) turns enough revenue that you don't have to feed it with the profits from other businesses. A food for thought.
