Apple receives most of its money through Hardware. Apple is, and always will be, primarily a hardware company.
Not quite... Apple is definitely moving towards becoming a media company, and their hardware and OS are just two of the ways they can get the media out to people. The iTunes music store is also a major source of income, and that is what they're moving towards: having media as their main source of income. They'll continue Macintosh, of course, and maybe eventually they'll come out with Granny Smith or Washington or something (:P), and they'll continue to provide the "only" hardware that will run it properly, but in the end, it'll be all about the media. As Steve Jobs has said himself many times, "It's all about the music."
