We feel incredibly lucky to live in "The 21st Century." But people in the 19th century would also feel how incredibly advanced and developed they were, while we, sitting in the 21st century laugh at them for being weirdly backward and not having access to smartphones. People 3 centuries from now may sit and laugh at us for being so excited about smartphones and tablets and think how incredibly backward we were.
Apple's net worth is at a staggering five hundred and fifty billion dollars. It's share price is touching 600 dollars. That means it's cheaper to buy an iPad than a single Apple share. All of these numbers make for a very interesting reading.
Apple is larger than Google and Microsoft COMBINED! If Apple only sells Mac computers and laptops and stops selling iPhones, iPads and iPods, it'll still be the 22nd largest company in the world! It's worth approximately 608 million iPads! Worth more than 300 space shuttle endeavors! More than five hundred and twenty six NFL teams. It's finally worth more than Exxon, the world's former most valuable company.
Apple has more cash reserves than the United States government. This one point alone is a story worth a space in the books of legends.
But there is, as Steve Jobs would say, "One more thing...."
Apple is worth more than 31 Mark Zuckerbergs and 8 Bill Gates combined! Who feels like the richest man in the world now?
