Here's what Apple is really worth in the real world

Here's what Apple is really worth in the real world
Apple - as you should know by now - is the world’s biggest company by market evaluations. Its value fluctuates by the day as shares go up and down, but if we assume that in the last past months it floats around the whopping $619 billion dollars, here is what one could buy with that kind of money. Just in case you wondered, that is.

The London Olympics are big, but you could buy 73 London Olympics with one Apple. Cupertino is also worth 2.14 times the value of the whole country of Greece.

Apple is also worth 2.4 times Microsoft and 3.1 times Google. Oh yeah, and if you think space travel needs a boost, one could get 364 Space Shuttles with one Apple. What else? There is a neat infographic to tell you just how huge Apple is right now. Check it out and let us know, what would you get with that much money?

apple is just for stupid noobs who just want to show shiny apple logo to all. apple sucks. it sells over priced phones and play with the cash. microsoft is much better as it donates lot of profit for causes and charities and not swim in cash pools like money hungary apple. google is also good as it seriousy spends in R&D and come up with really awesome stuff.

For every dollar they spend in court they should donate an equal amount to charity

Apple is just a thief, liar and complete immoral company.....facts are there, not any rumour: com/site/corpsins/ of course they have done much much more rotten and immoral things.... wake up and please, do not support (do not buy their products) them! e.g. why? an article on phonearena:http://goo gl/BkC6s

Worth from the "real-world"? Apple won't even amount to a billion usd. True worth has material value. Most of Apple's money is in cash (because of overpriced products). True valuable companies are those with material wealth like boeing, big oil companies, real estate magnates. If there is one big world wide recession apple would topple to the ground. But those who have material properties will strive and would be able to continue production. Foxconn have more worth than Apple in the sense of true value.

apple is a real winner, because its the money that all the tech companies want at the end of the day and apple is getting has great products and apple has the highest customer satisfaction in the world, more than 91% developers prefer apple over the other companies,the university toppers prefer apple over other companies which makes apple have the best employees and the investors are happy as well, my friend's father bought apple shares when steve jobs returned to apple...his relatives said that he couldn't afford microsoft shares,but he didn't care as he believed that jobs will change everything and today he is richer than all his relatives and they remain haters saying that he was just lucky.... i wonder how many intelligent people might have become rich by having faith in apple in the last is the best in the world because apple's customers form the most powerful group in the world......i am a proud owner of an iphone and an i don't hate google and i am not an apple fanboy because this comment is coming from google chrome on windows

Great company! In just 5 years it put giants like Nokia to its knees. They are like a locomotive, which everyone wants to surpass, but all they do is follow, including Giggle, Shamshung, LJ etc. :)

It's true. Samsung actually makes apple's chipsets and what not. Kind of old news though.
