Apple of my i

You all know of Apple and its "i" products. But how great is it exactly in terms of numbers? Here are some interesting facts:

Half of all U.S. households own at least one Apple product

89% of mobile app developers are interested in developing apps for the iPhone

There are currently around 400,000 iPhone/iPad apps

The iPhone now accounts for 50% of Apple's revenue

iPhone unit sales have grown 474% year over year in the Asia Pacific region

Apple spent 150 million dollars to develop the iphone

1.7 million iPhone 4s were sold in its first 3 days of availability

Apple could conceivably write off the entire public debt of eight of Europe's countries

Apple is the largest publicly traded company in the world by market capitalization overtopping ExxonMobil by some $60 billion

Apple is also the largest technology company in the world by revenue and profit, worth more than Google and  Microsoft combined

According to numbers from the World Bank, there are only 18 countries that have a GDP above $500 billion, while Apple's market cap stands at about $506 billion

Compared to other computer makers, Apple is 16.2 times more valuable than Dell ($31.1 billion) and 10.1 times more valuable then Hewlett Packard ($50.3 billion)

Apple is about 2.5 times as large as Google ($202.1 billion) and a little less than twice as large as Microsoft ($269.6 billion)

If Saudi Arabia used all of its oil revenues to purchase Apple stock, it would take about 15 months to generate the $506.2 billion needed to purchase the company at its current value.

The New York Federal Reserve has more gold in its vaults than any other location on earth. At $1,700 per ounce, the value of the gold in the market would still be less than the total value of Apple.

In the last 3 months, Apple brought in 4x more profit than Walmart, the world's largest retailers in 2011 while spending 3x less on operations

Apple's cash hoard alone is worth more than all, except 52 companies on Earth

Apple likely sold three times as many iPads as Amazon sold Kindle Fires and at twice the price

The iTunes Store generated 50 % more revenue than all of Yahoo did last quarter

Apple's profits for the last quarter exceed Google's entire revenue for the last quarter

Apple's profit last quarter was $3 billion more than all of Hollywood's gross box office receipts for all of last year

More iPhones are sold per second than babies born. In the December quarter, Apple sold 37 million iphones at a rate of 4.6 per second whereas the current global birth rate is about 4.2 births every second
