Apple is worth more than these 6 things

Apple is one of the biggest companies in the world, in all terms and here are 6 things that are smaller than this enormous US Tech Company. The company reported $108 billion revenue in fiscal year 2011. It has 60,400 employees and sells one of the best consumer electronics in the world.

Electronics: Mac, iPad, iPhone, iPod

Software: Mac OSX, iTunes, iLife, Aperture, Final Cut Studio, Safari, iOS and Logic Studio

Below is the list

 

1. Nearly the Combined Worth of the 10 Wealthiest People on Earth

Apple’s value comes close to the $406 billion combined net worth of the world’s 10 wealthiest billionaires. In simpler terms, that’s 148 Oprahs.

 

2. 4,000 Trips to the Moon

It costs a mere $100 million to travel to the moon in a $1.7 billion space shuttle (of which Apple could afford 235). With 60,400 full-time Apple employees, can you say “company picnic in outer space?”

 

3. All the Tea in China

China produces 855,190 metric tons of tea leaves each year at $1.86 per kilogram. That’s almost $1.6 billion — chump change compared to the $6.6 billion it takes to produce all the coffee in Brazil.

 

4. The Most Expensive Movies in History Combined

It cost $300 million to make Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, the most expensive movie ever made. $400 billion is more than 115 times the combined costs to make the 15 most expensive motion pictures in history.

 

5. The Combined Endowments of the Wealthiest U.S. Universities

Based on a 2010 report, the combined endowments of the nation’s 15 wealthiest universities is around $366 billion. But do they teach you how to make an iPad?

 

6. Half of NYC’s Market Value

Based on the Tentative Assessment Roll for the 2011 fiscal year, New York City’s market was valued at almost $800 billion. One of the world’s largest and most expensive cities is only worth about twice what Apple is worth.

  1. Excellent blog here! Also your web site loads up fast!
    What host are you using? Can I get your affiliate link to your host?
    I wish my web site loaded up as quickly as yours lol

    • This is wordpress.com, i generally use Godaddy and NetworkSolutions for my hosting and domains but for one domain I use HostGator (very disappointed with it).
      If you are looking for top notch performance at low prices – go for Amazon Web Services. Hard to set up but very useful and costs very less.
