The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which technology editor/analyst Andrew Tonner and industrials editor/analyst Brendan Byrnes discuss topics around the investing world.

Apple recently announced its first full quarter since the passing of Steve Jobs, and it was an absolute monster -- so good that one runs out of superlatives just trying to describe it. Especially with so many questions surrounding the company -- its less-than-desirable performance last quarter, the lack of its iPhone 4s in key emerging markets, and Steve Jobs' obvious absence -- the company delivered on a scale few expected. Andrew breaks down the specifics of the quarter and talks about what investors should expect.
