Apple's record service revenue couldn't make up for falling hardware sales
As many Apple watchers have predicted, the company's financial results this quarter are a break from the last few years of nonstop growth. The iPhone maker reported a revenue of $117.2 billion for its first fiscal quarter (ended December 2022), which is five percent down year over year, marking the first time Apple's revenue is down since 2019. 

There are a couple of bright spots in the company's performance, namely in its setting a revenue record of $20.8 billion in its Services business and hitting more than 2 billion active devices in its installed base. 

In a statement, CEO Tim Cook said "As we all continue to navigate a challenging environment, we are proud to have our best lineup of products and services ever, and as always, we remain focused on the long term and are leading with our values in everything we do."

Apple's decline in revenue is in line with a general slump in the tech industry, with Meta having just reported revenues that are 4 percent down from the previous year.

Winget: The best way to keep Windows apps updated
For a little more than a year, I've been working with winget daily to monitor and maintain my Windows 10 and 11 PCs. For those not already in the know, winget is the built-in, PowerShell-based interface to Microsoft's Windows Package Manager service.

Winget is designed to enable "users to discover, install, upgrade, remove and configure applications on Windows 10 and 11 computers," according to Microsoft Learn. In my experience, winget is helpful for checking and updating most applications that run on Windows.

Please note: winget is included with Windows 10 version 1709 and later and all versions of Windows 11 as the App Installer. If you're running an earlier version of Windows 10, visit the winget home page at GitHub. There, click the Latest link under "Releases" at right, and download an item named "Microsoft.DesktopAppInstaller...msixbundle" (the missing characters identify Microsoft Store apps). Double-click on this item to install it. (Don't worry: if you do this on a newer Windows version it will inform you, "The App Installer is already installed.")
