We know that Apple just had its biggest quarter in history. We know that they made an insane $US46.33 billion in revenue. But do we really know how much money is $US46.33 billion. It's hard to visualise, so this presentation and facts may help:
• the value of 72,220 bars of gold. • the entire value of Apple in 2004. • the value of all NFL Franchises combined. • the entire valuation of Ford. • the value of 20% of Google's outstanding shares. • the cost of forty-six billion, thirty-three million McChickens without tax. • the entire yearly defence budget of the U.K. • over 160 times the cost of the Louisiana Purchase (in 2011 dollars) • 8 times the GDP of Somalia. • US revenue from income tax of the Western United States. • enough to buy Mark Zuckerberg 6000 more houses. • winning $US125M lotto jackpot, everyday, for the entire year! • 23,165 times more than Chuck Norris makes in one year • enough to put one tenth of US high school seniors through college. • enough to give two Apple scented candles to everyone. On the planet. • the combined annual income of every resident of Rhode Island, twice. • enough to give each Apple employee 49 new Honda Civics
Of course revenue isn't net income. If you want to be a stickler about it Apple has $97 billion in cash and securities lying around — come on, go ahead and double everything on this list.
