Shares of Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) dropped on Wednesday in the wake of the company's latest earnings. Apple posted better-than-expected sales numbers for its iPhones and iPads and announced a $50 billion share buyback. And CEO Tim Cook said that the company is working on "amazing new hardware, software, and services" that will be released in autumn 2013 and in 2014. But investors weren't impressed.
