Quote from: http://modmyi.com/content/6759-apple-made-more-money-than.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed:+home_all+(MMi+%7C+Homepage+All)Apple made a lot of money last quarter, $46.33 billion to be exact. But, other than a bunch of zeros on a balance sheet, what does $46,000,000,000 equal?
A new site, Apple made more money than..., answers that question in a seemingly never-ending string of user submitted facts. The website starts with the simple phrase “Apple made more money than...” at the top of the page and a user submitted responses refresh underneath in a continuous loop of comparisons.
Some highlights include:
Enough to buy Adobe 3 times
Eight times the GDP of Somolia
23,165 times more than Chuck Norris makes in a year
Twice as much as RIM made the whole year
A stack of pennies 41,000 miles high.
Enough to put 1/10 of high school seniors through college.
Cost of 203 Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners.
The value of 72,220 bars of gold.
The entire yearly defense budget of the U.K.
The monthly salary of 185 million Foxconn workers.
Interesting how much money Apple made last quarter when you put it into comparatives.
