I have to take a look at that and report back but in the meantime...

Business Insider: "15 Amazing Facts About Apple"

  • Apple generated $65 billion of revenue last year. That's bigger than the GDP of Iraq, Croatia, Libya, Ecuador, and more than 100 other countries...And, yes, that $65 billion of revenue makes Apple officially bigger than Microsoft ($62 billion).
  • Apple spent only $1.7 billion on research and development last year. Microsoft, with smaller sales and vastly slower growth, spent $8.7 billion.
  • Apple spent only $5.5 billion on sales, marketing, and general and administrative expenses last year. Microsoft spent $17 billion.
  • So it's not surprising that Apple is now the most valuable technology company in the world
