Where do they come up with some of this stuff? A new infographic out from MBAOnline.com attempts to put Apple’s recent mammoth quarter — you know the one where the iPhone maker just posted $46 billion in revenue (or as we termed it “three Yahoos, two Googles and a Microsoft”)– in perspective.
And how do they make their point? Well, consider this: The company’s $400 billion market value (actually $417 billion as of last count) is enough cash to cover 42 percent of the United States if laid out in dollar bills.
OK, now that’s a little odd. But this isn’t: The company’ s $97.7 billion in cash reserves would be enough to pay off the debt of eight countries in the European Union, including Bulgaria, Slovakia and Malta.
