On a call to discuss its first-ever share dividend Monday morning, Apple CEO Tim Cook admitted that the new iPad had a “record weekend” for sales.
Cook did not get specific with sales numbers because the call was focused on the new dividend and share buyback. However, the announcement is a curious one because of the notable lack of sell-outs at many stores around the country this past weekend.
The new iPad costs about $364.35 for its bill of materials, according to a teardown analysis by IHS iSuppli.
Epic Games did a demo today of Unreal Engine 3 running in the Adobe Flash environment. That means games with good 3D graphics will be able to run in web browsers and inside sites such as Facebook without requiring a user to download the game first.
